How to contribute

PDAL welcomes all contributions. We use Github's pull requests to accept patches from the community.

Getting Started

Making Changes

  • Create a topic branch from where you want to base your work.
    • You usually should base your topic branch off of the master branch.
    • To quickly create a topic branch: git checkout -b my-topic-branch
  • Make commits of logical units.
  • Check for unnecessary whitespace with git diff --check before committing.
  • Make sure your commit messages are in the proper format.
  • Make sure you have added the necessary tests for your changes.
  • Run all the tests to assure nothing else was accidentally broken.

Submitting Changes

  • Push your changes to a topic branch in your fork of the repository.
  • Submit a pull request to the repository in the PDAL organization.
    • If your pull request fixes/references an issue, include that issue number in the pull request. For example:
Wiz the bang

Fixes #123.
  • PDAL developers will look at your patch and take an appropriate action.

The basic skeleton of this CONTRIBUTING file was lifted directly from Puppet's.
