## Contributions best practices

- Do write clear and meaningful GIT commit messages.
- Make sure to include _Github Special Keywords_ which references the issue and automatically closes the issue when PR is merged.
- When you make a small change to a PR like fixing a typo, any style change, or changing grammar. Make sure you squash your commits so that you dont get a large number of commits for a relatively small change.
- Make sure you include a nice PR description depicting the code you have changes, why to change a following piece of code and ensuring there is sufficient information for the reviewer to understand your PR.
