This is an OPEN Open Source Project


What?

Individuals making significant and valuable contributions are given commit-access to the project to contribute as they see fit. This project is more like an open wiki than a standard guarded open source project.

Rules

There are a few basic ground-rules for contributors:

  1. No --force pushes or modifying the Git history in any way.
  2. Non-master branches ought to be used for ongoing work.
  3. External API changes and significant modifications ought to be subject to an internal pull-request to solicit feedback from other contributors.
  4. Internal pull-requests to solicit feedback are encouraged for any other non-trivial contribution but left to the discretion of the contributor.
  5. For significant changes wait a full 24 hours before merging so that active contributors who are distributed throughout the world have a chance to weigh in.
  6. Contributors should attempt to adhere to the prevailing code-style.
  7. Run npm test locally before submitting your PR, to catch any easy to miss style & testing issues. To diagnose test failures, there are two ways to run a single test file:

Releases

Declaring formal releases remains the prerogative of the project maintainer.

Changes to this arrangement
