Contributing to IDS-G-pre
All content published here is approved by the IDSA Technical Steering Committee and the IDSA Working Groups. Detailed information on the contribution process can be found in the IDS-G Handbook. Nevertheless, you are very welcome to contribute to this project when you find a bug, want to suggest an improvement, or have an idea for a useful feature. For this, always create an issue and a corresponding branch, and follow our style guides as described below.
You always have to create an issue if you want to propose or integrate a bugfix, improvement, or feature. Briefly and clearly describe the purpose of your contribution in the corresponding issue. The pre-defined labels improve the understanding of your intentions and help to follow the scope of your changes.
This is for suggesting a change in an overall Structure. This can be a question that needs to be discussed, adding something to the repository, setting up a working group, etc.
This can mean any change, addition or removal to a piece of code, it also includes Bug Reports.
This means that there is Information we already have that needs to be recorded in the way that is described. It may include meeting times, proccesses we have established, already discussed definitions / clarifications, tested use cases, failures, etc.
As the name indicated, this is for issues that are quick and easy to fix, e.g. grammar / spelling mistakes, a broken picture, etc.
Briefly and clearly describe the purpose of your contribution in the corresponding issue. The pre-defined labels improve the understanding of your intentions and help to follow the scope of your changes.
Bug Report: As mentioned above, bug reports should be submitted as an issue. To give others the chance to reproduce the error in order to find a solution as quickly as possible, the report should at least include the following information:
- Description: What did you expect and what happened instead?
- Steps to reproduce (system specs included)
- Relevant logs and/or media (optional): e.g. an image
The labels are listed at the issues. There are two types of labels: one describes the content of the issue and should be used by the developer that creates the issue. The other one, starting with
status, will be added from the developer that takes on the issue. New issues should be initially marked with
- Basic labels:
open for discussion: issue is addressed but further contribution is requested by everyone
status:closed: issue is closed (after successful approval by issuer and QA)
status:duplicate: issue is a duplicate of another linked issue and therefore discontinued
status:in-progress: issue has been assigned and is currently being worked on
status:on-hold: issue may be implemented at a later date
status:open: issue has been submitted or re-opened recently
status:out-of-scope: issue is considered out of the project's scope and therefore not further considered
status:resolved: issue has been implemented and tested by a developer
status:wont-fix: issue is in scope but considered impossible or too expensive to deal with
Topic:Structure: We need to add something to our overall structure / knowledge
Topic:Code: This is how we implement a feature
Topic:Documentation: We need to record this information
After creating an issue yourself or if you want to address an existing issue, you have to create a branch with a unique number and name that assigns it to an issue. Therefore, follow the guidelines at https://deepsource.io/blog/git-branch-naming-conventions/. After your changes, update the
README.md, Wiki, and
CHANGELOG.mdwith necessary details. Then, create a pull request and note that committing to the main branch is not allowed. Please use the feature
linked issuesto link issues and pull requests.
Pull requests have to be approved by the IDSA TSC and the IDSA Working Groups.
We encourage all contributors to stick to the commit convention following the specification on Conventional Commits. In general, use the imperative in the present tense. A quick overview of the schema:
<type>[optional scope]: <description>
!for breaking changes to a type.
An example of a very good commit might look like this:
