Contributing to Jetty
Thanks for your interest in this project.

Project description
Jetty is a lightweight highly scalable java based web server and servlet engine.
Our goal is to support web protocols like HTTP, HTTP/2, and WebSocket in a high
volume low latency way that provides maximum performance while retaining the ease
of use and compatibility with years of servlet development.
Jetty is a modern fully async web server that has a long history as a component
oriented technology easily embedded into applications while still offering a solid
traditional distribution for webapp deployment.
