OSSIM Committer Guidelines

Do no harm, make it better, coordinate and communicate with the other developers.

  • Coordinate your intentions and changes through the mailing list - especially for significant changes
  • Make your changes on the current version in the repository
  • Review your code to avoid intellectual property issues
  • Give credit and pointers in the comments when using code from other sources
  • When adding new files, post the names of the files to the mailing list so they can be added to the other build systems
  • Test your changes, where practical add unit tests
  • Ask someone to check the build and check for missing checkins
  • Discuss interface changes prior to implementation with the other members of the team
  • When in doubt, ask
  • Encourage and support other contributors in the community
