We use maven to handle our dependencies.

- No tabs; use 4 spaces instead.
- No trailing whitespaces.
- No CRLF line endings, LF only, put your gits 'core.autocrlf' on 'true'.
- No 80 column limit or 'weird' midstatement newlines.
- The number of commits in a pull request should be kept to a minimum (squish them into one most of the time - use common sense!).
- No merges should be included in pull requests unless the pull request's purpose is a merge.
- Pull requests should be tested (does it compile? AND does it work?) before submission.
- Any major additions should have documentation ready and provided if applicable (this is usually the case).
- Most pull requests should be accompanied by a corresponding Leaky ticket so we can associate commits with Leaky issues (this is primarily for changelog generation on dl.bukkit.org).
- Try to follow test driven development where applicable.
