Instructions for editing these protocols
These files are all stored in markdown format (https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/ , see also https://help.github.com/articles/github-flavored-markdown)
If these are methods on which you are working, feel free to edit and commit changes or create an issue first to give folks a heads up on the proposed changes.
Although it is ok to commit to master, a good workflow on a shared repository is:
- Make a working branch for yourself. You can even push this branch to the repository, in that case, make sure to give it a descriptive name involving the planned work or perhaps your name.
- Do you work in this branch and commit often.
- Issue a pull request so others can review your work before it is merged into /master.
This may be overkill for the protocols repository, but may make sense for others.
The plan is to make this repository public. Because it is very difficult to actually delete anything from a git repository, it is important to never commit any private information we don't want shared. I don't think there is much chance of that, but I just wanted to warn everyone.
