# NOTE: This is a work in progress. As of July 24, it applies only to dm-core.# Contributing to Edge DataMapperWe have now implemented Hoe throughout the DataMapper suite, so there will be a handful of new procedures for contributing to our git repositories. I'll give you a run through of how to set up your machine, and then provide a few commands that should be run before committing or pushing changes.## Installing and configuring HoeThe first step is to install hoe. You'll need at least version 1.7.0. (sudo) gem install hoe --include-dependencies Now you'll need to configure hoe. You'll need to run this from inside of dm-core, or one of the other DataMapper projects. rake config_hoe The only thing you should need to change is the exclude regular expression, which needs to look like this: exclude: !ruby/regexp /tmp$|CVS|\.svn|\.git|.+\.gemspec/ Now you have the correct setup for contributing.## Before committing changesBefore you commit changes, you must verify that `Manifest.txt` (the file which contains the names of every file to be included in a gem release) and `[project-name].gemspec` are up to date. We have create a rake task to make this easy: rake gemspec This will check `Manifest.txt` (using Hoe's `rake check_manifest`) to ensure there are no differences between the files in the project, and those listed in the manifest. If there is a difference, it will display a warning and a list of the differences in `diff` format.If the changes in the diff are correct, then you can run the following command to update the manifest. rake check_manifest | patch If there are files you do not want added to the manifest, then you should remove the files from the project, and then run `rake gemspec` again.If `rake gemspec` says it was successful, then you can proceed with committing and pushing your changes.
