Individuals making significant and valuable contributions are given commit-access to the project to contribute as they see fit. This project is more like an open wiki than a standard guarded open source project.
There are a few basic ground-rules for contributors:
--forcepushes or modifying the Git history in any way.
- Non-master branches ought to be used for ongoing work.
- External API changes and significant modifications ought to be subject to an internal pull-request to solicit feedback from other contributors.
- Internal pull-requests to solicit feedback are encouraged for any other non-trivial contribution but left to the discretion of the contributor.
- Contributors should attempt to adhere to the prevailing code-style.
Declaring formal releases remains the prerogative of the project maintainer.
