Contribution Guidelines

Fork this repository to your account, using the Fork button on the top right corner.

Use git clone to clone your forked repo to your local machine: (replace 'your_username' with appropriate value)

git clone

Set the `upstream` to this repo:

The easiest way is to use the https url:

git remote add upstream

or if you have ssh set up you can use that url instead:

git remote add upstream

Working branch for **sfd-alumni** will always be the `develop` branch. Hence, all the latest code will always be on the *develop* branch. You should always create a new branch for any new piece of work branching from *develop* branch: ``` git branch new_branch ``` **NOTE:** You must not mess with `master` branch or bad things will happen. *master* branch contains the latest stable code, so just leave it be.

Before starting any new piece of work, move to develop branch:

git checkout develop

Now you can fetch latest changes from main repo using: ``` git fetch upstream ```
`rebase` the latest code with *develop* branch: ``` git rebase upstream/develop ```
`checkout` to your newly created branch: ``` git checkout new_branch ```
Rebase the code of *new_branch* from the code in *develop* branch, run the `rebase` command from your current branch: ``` git rebase develop ``` Now all your changes on your current branch will be based on the top of the changes in *develop* branch.

Push your changes to your forked repo

git push origin new_branch

Now, you can simply send the Pull Request to Parent Repo from within the Github.

Always squash up your commits into a single commit before sending the Pull Request. Use git rebase -i for this purpose. For example to squash last 3 commits into a single commit, simply run:

git rebase -i HEAD~3
