Contributing to Project Ne10
- Make sure you have a GitHub account.
- Create an issue for your work if one does not already exist. This gives
everyone visibility of whether others are working on something similar. ARM
licensees may contact ARM directly via their partner managers instead if
- If you intend to include Third Party IP in your contribution, please raise a separate issue for this and ensure that the changes that include Third Party IP are made on a separate topic branch.
- Fork Ne10 on GitHub.
- Clone the fork to your own machine.
- Create a local topic branch based on the Ne10
- Make commits of logical units. See these general Git guidelines for contributing to a project.
- Follow the ProjectNe10 coding style; this style is enforced for ProjectNe10.
- Keep the commits on topic. If you need to fix another bug or make another enhancement, please create a separate issue and address it on a separate topic branch.
- Avoid long commit series. If you do have a long series, consider whether some commits should be squashed together or addressed in a separate topic.
- Make sure your commit messages are in the proper format. If a commit fixes
a GitHub issue, include a reference (e.g.
"fixes /issues/54"); this ensures the issue is
automatically closed when merged into the Ne10
- Where appropriate, please update the documentation.
- Consider whether the Release Notes or Building file in the Documentation folder need updating.
- Changes that have a material impact on behavior or programming interfaces should have an entry at the end of the Release Notes. Minor changes (e.g. basic refactoring or typo fixes) do not need an entry.
- If this is your first contribution, you may add your name or your company name to the Acknowledgements file.
- For topics with multiple commits, you should make all documentation changes (and nothing else) in the last commit of the series. Otherwise, include the documentation changes within the single commit.
- Please test your changes. As a minimum, ensure the test application builds and runs. Also, perform unit and conformance tests on new functions.
- Ensure that each commit in the series has at least one
Signed-off-by:line, using your real name and email address. The names in the Signed-off-by:
lines must match. If anyone else contributes to the commit, they must also add their ownSigned-off-by:` line. By adding this line the contributor certifies the contribution is made under the terms of the Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO).
- Push your local changes to your fork of the repository.
- Submit a pull request to Ne10.
- The changes in the pull request will then undergo further review and testing. Any review comments will be made as comments on the pull request. This may require you to do some rework.
- When the changes are accepted, ARM will integrate them.
