How to contribute
To start, is important to mention that we keep all EEA pacakges under EEA Organisation on GitHub (https://github.com/eea) and we fork them to Collective so everyone can contribute to them. We keep the repositories from Collective and EEA in sync.
We want to keep it as easy as possible to contribute changes that get things working. There are a few guidelines that we need contributors to follow so that we can have a chance of keeping on top of things.
- Make sure you have a GitHub account
- If you need to submit a ticket do it under EEA Organisation area (https://github.com/eea) under the respective package, e.g. https://github.com/eea/eea.daviz/issues
- Submit a ticket for your issue, assuming one does not already exist.
- Check that issue/feature is not already reported under EEA official issues register for Zope/Plone at http://taskman.eionet.europa.eu/projects/zope
- Clearly describe the issue including steps to reproduce when it is a bug.
- If case state the browser and operating system used.
- We also keep a discussion lists for most of the public packages under Google Groups.
Please note that adding a bug report or feature request in the EEA github does not automatically mean that EEA will work on them, since there are budget implications.
The issues/features registered in github are regarded only as community requests and here to facilitate the Plone community contributions.
EEA will work directly on the Plone community's requests when they coincide with EEA's planned projects. In this case we will transfer the ticket to the EEA official issue register.
EEA sprints are managed at http://taskman.eionet.europa.eu/projects/zope.
- The pull requests and changes must be done on packages found on Collective e.g. https://github.com/collective/eea.daviz
- Fork the repository from Collective not from EEA (as stated above they will be synced in automatic)
- Make sure you added an entry under HISTORY.txt describing your changes
- Make sure you have added the necessary tests for your changes (do not forget major browsers).
- Make sure you have updated and added documentation when necessary.
- Run all the tests to assure nothing else was accidentally broken.
- Push your changes in your fork of the repository.
- Submit a pull request to the repository in the Collective organization.
