Contributing to Development

  • Please submit 1 pull request for each GitHub issue you work on.
  • Make sure that only the lines you have changed actually show up in a file-comparison (diff). Some text editors alter every line; this should be avoided.
  • It is recommended to configure git pull to rebase on the master branch by default to avoid unnecessary merge commits. You can set this up in your copy of the repo's .git/config file like so:
    [branch "master"]
      rebase = true
  • See the CONTRIBUTING document for a tutorial on getting started.
