The Vulkan source code is distributed across several GitHub repositories. The repositories sponsored by Khronos and LunarG are described here. In general, the canonical Vulkan Loader and Validation Layers sources are in the Khronos repository, while the LunarG repositories host sources for additional tools and sample programs.
As a convenience, the contents of the Vulkan-LoaderAndValidationLayers repository are downstreamed into the VulkanTools and VulkanSamples repositories via a branch named
trunk. This makes the VulkanTools and VulkanSamples easier to work with and avoids compatibility issues that might arise with Vulkan-LoaderAndValidationLayers components if they were obtained from a separate repository.

You'll be prompted with a “click-through” CLA as part of submitting your pull request in GitHub.
