In order for a PR to be approved, all the tests need to pass and all the public methods need to be documented and listed in the guides. Remember:

  • to run all tests locally: bundle exec rspec
  • to generate the docs locally: bundle exec yard
  • to list undocumented methods: bundle exec yard stats --list-undoc
