The Flagbase Contribution Model is designed to streamline our development process and ensure that all contributions are organized and easy to manage. By adhering to these guidelines, we can maintain high-quality code and continue to build a robust flag management platform.
Before starting any development work, create an issue in our issue tracking system (either GitHub Issues or Jira). This will allow us to discuss the proposed changes, prioritize work, and assign tasks to contributors.
Issues should include:
- A descriptive title
- A clear and concise explanation of the problem or feature request
- Any relevant supporting information (e.g., screenshots, logs, etc.)
Our branching strategy is based on the Gitflow Workflow. We maintain two primary branches:
release: This branch contains the stable, production-ready code.
master: This branch serves as an integration branch for new features and bugfixes.
When working on a new feature or bugfix, create a new branch based on the
master branch. Use the following naming conventions for your branches:
- For features:
- For bugfixes:
Once your changes are ready for review, submit a pull request to merge your branch into the
Commit and Pull Request Guidelines
Follow these guidelines when creating commits and pull requests:
- Write clear and concise commit messages that describe the changes you made.
- Reference the issue number in your commit messages by adding
#<issue_number>at the end of the message.
- Keep your pull requests focused and limited to a single issue.
- Provide a descriptive title for your pull request and include a summary of the changes made.
- In the pull request description, add a reference to the issue using
Fixes #<issue_number>to automatically link the pull request to the issue.
Integration with GitHub Issues and Jira
Our contribution model integrates seamlessly with both GitHub Issues and Jira. When creating issues, commits, or pull requests, use the relevant issue number from the respective issue tracking system.
For GitHub Issues:
- Reference the issue in your commit message with
