Revising the Contribution Guidelines

Updating the guidelines from here:

  • Dominika: The process of contributing code is good but the associated communication can be improved.

    • An issue should be created

    • Discuss during Office Hours or Discourse and decide if/how to incorporate

    • The current guidelines are not being followed, for example in the TZ upgrade process

      • (Wes: this is largely because core team members are also working on that upgrade)

      • The guidelines look good overall

  • Alfred:

    • The community needs to be responsive to government requests/requirements; we should not be a blocker

    • There might not be a one-size-fits all guideline for this

  • Chris:

    • Reviewing existing issues to ensure that related ones don’t already exist should be involved near the start as well

  • Wes:

    • Want to streamline the overall process and reduce the load on the contributing partner.



Jean: Enterprise Support should include some amount of design review from the core team

  • Wes: Yes, we will do this!

  • Jean: This needs to be more clear in the documentation

  • Alfred: The information on time dedicated to design review should be highlighted on the enterprise flyer.
