LF ID Application
All the tools require an Linux Foundation (LF) ID.
If you do not have an LF ID, can apply one for free.
Jira board usage
We are using Jira to track the project progress, and welcome to report bug issues or create to-do tasks there. Each item should try keeping simple and focused, hence easy to fix and review.
After login with your LF ID, you can see those task items with one of the following statuses:
To Do: Available for picking and fix.
In Progress: Some on already picked it (check the assignee) to work on.
Under Review: Related patchset has been submitted for review, and added as comment under the Jira item.
Done: Patchset merged, the item has been resolved.
In brief, if you want to contribute, create or find some
To Do item, and assign it to yourself, then update its status to
In Progress. After the item is fixed, remember to mark it as
Under Review and
Done when the patch is submitted and merged.
Questions and discussions

Code Commit Steps
The project employs Gerrit as the code commit/review system.
- Clone the project to your working directory with your
$ git clone ssh://LFID@gerrit.hyperledger.org:29418/cello && scp -p -P 29418 LFID@gerrit.hyperledger.org:hooks/commit-msg cello/.git/hooks/
(Optionally) Config your git name and email if not setup previously.
$ git config user.name "your name" $ git config user.email "your email"
(Optionally) Setup git-review by inputting your LFID. Notice this is only necessary once.
$ git review -s
- Assign yourself a
To DoJira task, mark it as
In progress, then create a branch with the Jira task number off of your cloned repository, e.g., for CE-26, it can be:
$ cd cello $ git checkout -b CE-26
- After modifying the code, run
make checkto make sure all the checking is passed. Then Commit your code with
-sto sign-off, and
-ato automatically add changes (or run
git add .to include all changes manually).
$ make check ... py27: commands succeeded py30: commands succeeded py35: commands succeeded flake8: commands succeeded congratulations :) $ git commit -s -a
Example commit msg may look like (take CE-1234 for example):
[CE-1234] A short description of your change with no period at the end You can add more details here in several paragraphs, but please keep each line width less than 80 characters. A bug fix should include the issue number. CE-1234 #done. Change-Id: If2e142ea1a21bc4b42f702f9a27d70d31edff20d Signed-off-by: Your Name <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Submit your commit using
git review, and mark the corresponding Jira item as
$ git review remote: Processing changes: new: 1, refs: 1, done remote: remote: New Changes: remote: http://gerrit.hyperledger.org/r/7915 [CE-26] Update the contribution documentation remote: To ssh://gerrit.hyperledger.org:29418/cello * [new branch] HEAD -> refs/publish/master/CE-26 Switched to branch 'master' Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
Notice you will get a gerrit url like
http://gerrit.hyperledger.org/r/7915, open it and check the status.
After the ci checking passed, add reviewers to the reviewer list and also post the gerrit url at the RocketChat channel. The patch will be merged into the
master branch after passing the review, then mark the Jira item as
- If you need to refine the patch further as the reviewers may suggest, you can change on the same branch, and commit the new code with
git commit -a --amend, and then use the
git reviewcommand again.
