Submitting changes for review

  1. On your forked branch, click the New Pull Request button
  2. Ensure that the base fork is HackForVenezuela/ and the base branch is gh-pages.
  3. Ensure that the head fork is <your_username>/ and that the compare branch is gh-pages
  4. Enter a summary of your changes and select Create Pull Request

Your changes will be reviewed by a page admin. Some fixes may be requested before your changes are merged and published.

Submitting hotfixes

If you need to quickly submit a hotfix, follow the process for submitting changes for review and contact a page admin to have your changes approved and published. This should be used sparingly for fixing accidental misinformation or serious typos.

Moderators: Publishing Changes

  1. Merge PR from user fork into HackForVenezuela/
  2. Create a PR to merge gh-pages branch into master branch
    • Note: master should never be merged back into gh-pages, as this will copy the CNAME file and could cause a collision or temporary outage.
  3. Assign another moderator to the PR to review and merge changes.
    • If reviewing and merging changes, use the files tab on the pull request page to view changes, and use the "create review" dropdown to approve/deny changes. Once approved by one person other than the author, the "Merge Pull Request" button will unlock

Admins: Publishing Hotfixes

If this is a hotfix, tag the PR with the "hotfix" tag and check the "Use admin privileges to merge" box when merging pull request. Note that this will bypass all checks, and changes will go live immidiately
