Description

Here is a description on how to use CONTRIBUTING.md https://github.com/blog/1184-contributing-guidelines
It would be good to add a CONTRIBUTING.md file.
This link will provided on the pull-request page for potential contributors.
Here are some examples:

- https://github.com/geotools/geotools/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md
- https://github.com/geoserver/geoserver/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

This CONTRIBUTIONS.md gives a chance to communicate any terms (include a test case, sign a contribution agreement) clear.

Thanks Jo for pointing this out.

History

#1 Updated by Harrissou Santanna about 4 years ago

Though a bit light, we do have https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/blob/master/CONTRIBUTE.md in QGIS GitHub repo. Then in the website, there's http://qgis.org/en/site/getinvolved/development/qgisdevelopersguide/index.html for coders or http://docs.qgis.org/testing/en/docs/documentation_guidelines/index.html for writers and translators.
Anything else needed or could this report be closed?

Is this still valid given the pull request template?

#5 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 2 years ago

I still believe having contributing guidelines in the repo itself (can be a copy of the website page, or better the page and the docs could point to CONTRIBUTING.md file in the repo)

#6 Updated by Harrissou Santanna over 2 years ago

Paolo, just in case, we do have https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/blob/master/.github/CONTRIBUTING.md, shown anytime someone wants to create a pull request.

From desktop it works, from phone not.
