Submitting Tests
16

Test submission is via the typical [GitHub workflow][github flow]:

  • Fork the GitHub repository (and make sure you're still relatively in sync with it if you forked a while ago)

  • Create a branch for your changes. Being a key of effective Git flow, it is strongly recommended that the topic branch tradition be followed here, i.e. the branch naming convention is based on the "topic" you will be working on, e.g. git checkout -b topic-name

  • Make your changes

  • Run the lint script in the root of your checkout to detect common mistakes in test submissions. This will also be run after submission and any errors will prevent your PR being accepted. If it detects an error that forms an essential part of your test, edit the list of exceptions stored in tools/lint/lint.whitelist.

  • Commit your changes.

  • Push your local branch to your GitHub repository.

  • Using the GitHub UI create a Pull Request for your branch.

  • When you get review comments, make more commits to your branch to address the comments.

  • Once everything is reviewed and all issues are addressed, your pull request will be automatically merged.

For detailed guidelines on setup and each of these steps, please refer to the [Github Test Submission][github-intro] documentation.

Hop on to the [mailing list][public-test-infra] or [IRC][] ([webclient][web irc], join channel #testing) if you have an issue. There is no need to announce your review request, as soon as you make a Pull Request GitHub will inform interested parties.
