+## Issues
+GitHub Issues tracks SGX SDK and PSW design and development issues, bugs, and feature requests.
+For usage, installation, or other requests for help, please use the []( forum instead.

+* What CPU, platform, operating system/distribution, and SGX driver are you running? The more specific, the better.
+* For crashes, please provide the backtrace (use gdb).
+### Contribution Guide
+We accept contributions as pull requests on GitHub. More detailed guidelines will be added later. Please follow these simple rules for now: 
+* A PR should have a clear purpose, and do one thing only, and nothing more. This will enable us review your PR more quickly.
+* Each commit in PR should be a small, atomic change representing one step in development.
+* Please squash intermediate steps within PR for bugfixes, style cleanups, reversions, etc., so they would not appear in merged PR history.
+* Please explain anything non-obvious from the code in comments, commit messages, or the PR description, as appropriate.
