Please follow this style to make opensds easy to review, maintain and develop.

Report issues

A great way to contribute to the project is to send a detailed report when you encounter an issue. We always appreciate a well-written, thorough bug report, and will thank you for it!

When reporting issues, refer to this format:

  • What version of env (opensds, os, golang etc) are you using?
  • What happened?
  • What you expected to happen?
  • How to reproduce it?(as minimally and precisely as possible)

Propose PRs

  • Raise your idea as an issue
  • If it is a new feature that needs lots of design details, a design proposal should also be submitted here.
  • After reaching consensus in the issue discussions and design proposal reviews, complete the development on the forked repo and submit a PR. Here are the PRs that are already closed.
  • If a PR is submitted by one of the core members, it has to be merged by a different core member.
  • After PR is sufficiently discussed, it will get merged, abondoned or rejected depending on the outcome of the discussion.

Thank you for your contribution !
