Contributing to Project X-Ray¶
There are a couple of guidelines when contributing to Project X-Ray which are listed here.
All new contributions must also be released under this license.
Code of Conduct¶
Sign your work¶
All commits are required to include this sign off and we use the Probot DCO App to check pull requests for this.
The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for the patch, which certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to pass it on as a open-source patch. The rules are pretty simple: if you can certify the below:
Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1 By making a contribution to this project, I certify that: (a) The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I have the right to submit it under the open source license indicated in the file; or (b) The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source license and I have the right under that license to submit that work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part by me, under the same open source license (unless I am permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated in the file; or (c) The contribution was provided directly to me by some other person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified it. (d) I understand and agree that this project and the contribution are public and that a record of the contribution (including all personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with this project or the open source license(s) involved.
then you just add a line saying
Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <email@example.com>
using your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions.)
You can add the signoff as part of your commit statement. For example:
git commit --signoff -a -m "Fixed some errors."
Hint: If you’ve forgotten to add a signoff to one or more commits, you can use the following command to add signoffs to all commits between you and the upstream master:
git rebase --signoff upstream/master
