Reporting bugs

For anything other than small changes, it’s a good idea to open a bug report for it (in case one doesn’t already exist). This gives others the chance to give input and is useful for tracking. Create JGit bugs here.

Submitting changes

  • We use Gerrit to review all changes by committers or contributors before they are merged.
  • Make sure you have an account and have set up the commit-msg hook before committing.
  • When committing your changes, see the contributor guide or other commits on what your commit message should include.
  • Run the following to push your change for review (with username replaced by your Gerrit username):
git push ssh:// HEAD:refs/for/master
  • Add the link to the review as a comment on the bug report, so that people coming from the bug report can find it.
  • Then wait for someone to review your change. If there is something to be corrected, amend your commit and push it again.

Have fun :).
