You’ve found a bug in the source code, a mistake in the documentation or maybe you’d like a new feature? You can help us by submitting an issue on GitHub. Before you create an issue, make sure to search the issue archive — your issue may have already been addressed!

Please try to create bug reports that are:

  • Reproducible. Include steps to reproduce the problem.
  • Specific. Include as much detail as possible: which version, what environment, etc.
  • Unique. Do not duplicate existing opened issues.
  • Scoped to a Single Bug. One bug per report.

Pull Request

There are 2 main work flows when dealing with pull requests:

  • Pull Request from a forked repository
  • Pull Request from a branch within a repository

Here we are going to focus on 2. Creating a Topical Branch:

  1. First, we will need to create a branch from the latest commit on master. Make sure your repository is up to date first using

     git pull origin main

    Note: git pull does a git fetch followed by a git merge to update the local repo with the remote repo. For a more detailed explanation, see this stackoverflow post.

  2. To create a branch, use git checkout -b <new-branch-name> [<base-branch-name>], where base-branch-name is optional and defaults to main.

    Use a standard convention for branch names. For example, <your-name>-dev. It will be easier to track your pull requests if you use this convention.

    I’m going to create a new branch called jsm-dev from the main branch and push it to github.

     git checkout -b jsm-dev main
     git push origin jsm-dev
  3. To create a pull request, you must have changes committed to your new branch.

  4. Go to Pull Requests and click on the New Pull Request button.

  5. Select the main branch as the base branch and the jsm-dev branch as the compare branch.

  6. Follow the template and fill in the proper information for the pull request.

  7. Click on the Submit button.

  8. You have successfully created a pull request. Now wait for mentor approval. Once approved, you can merge the pull request.
