Contribution Quick Start
I do not accept pull requests on the github mirror, please use patches instead.
Anyone can contribute to musicctl. First you need to clone the repository:
git clone https://git.sr.ht/~theorytoe/musicctl cd musicctl
When making changes, ensure the following:
- Ensure that your code is properly formatted properly with stylua.
- Ensure that everything works as expected.
- Do not forget to update the docs.
Once you are happy with your work, you can create a commit (or several commits). Follow these general rules:
- Limit the first line (title) of the commit message to 60 characters.
- Use a short prefix for the commit title for readability with
git log --oneline.
- Use the body of the commit message to actually explain what your patch does and why it is useful.
- Address only one issue/topic per commit.
- If you are fixing a ticket, use appropriate commit trailers.
- If you are fixing a regression introduced by another commit, add a
fix:trailer with the commit id and its title.
There is a great reference for commit messages in the Linux kernel documentation.
Before sending the patch, you should configure your local clone with sane defaults:
git config format.subjectPrefix "[PATCH] musicctl.lua" git config sendemail.to "~firstname.lastname@example.org"
And send the patch to the mailing list:
git send-email --annotate -1
Before your patch can be applied, it needs to be reviewed and approved. Approval will be indicated by a reply to your patch with a Reviewed-by trailer.
You can follow the review process via email and on the web ui.
Wait for feedback. Address comments and amend changes to your original commit. Then you should send a v2 (and maybe a v3, v4, etc.):
git send-email --annotate -v2 -1
Once your patch has been reviewed and approved it will be applied and pushed.
