Contribution guidelines

Thank you for wanting to contribute to this project!

Contributing code

There are a couple of things we are going to look out for in PRs and knowing them upfront is going to reduce the number of times we will be going back and forth, making things more efficient.

  1. We have CI checks in place that validate formatting and code style. Make sure dprint check and cargo clippy both finish without any warnings or errors. If you don't already have it installed, you can obtain in various ways.
  2. All text document (,, etc) should follow the semantic linebreaks specification.
  3. We strive for atomic commits with good commit messages. As an inspiration, read this blogpost. An atomic commit is a cohesive diff with formatting checks, linter and build passing. Ideally, all tests are passing as well but we acknowledge that this is not always possible depending on the change you are making.
  4. If you are making any user visible changes, include a changelog entry.

Contributing issues

When contributing a feature request, please focus on your problem as much as possible. It is okay to include ideas on how the feature should be implemented but they should be 2nd nature of your request.

For more loosely-defined problems and ideas, consider starting a discussion instead of opening an issue.
