Contributing to Apache Distill

Thank you for contributing to the Apache Distill project!

There are certain procedures that must be followed for all contributions. These procedures are necessary to allow us to allocate resources for reviewing and testing your contribution, as well as to communicate effectively with you during the review process.

  1. Create an issue in JIRA

    All changes to Apache Distill must have a corresponding issue in JIRA so the change can be properly tracked:

    If you do not already have an account on JIRA, you will need to create before creating your new issue.

  2. Make and test your changes locally

    The Apache Distill source is maintained in a git repository hosted on Apache:

    To make your changes, fork the repository and make commits to a topic branch in your fork. Commits should be made in logical units and must reference the JIRA issue number:

    $ git commit -m "#SENSSOFT-123: #High-level message describing the changes."

    Avoid commits which cover multiple, distinct goals that could (and should) be handled separately.

    If you do not already have an account on JIRA, you will need to create one before making your changes.

  3. Submit your changes via a pull request on Git

    Once your changes are ready, submit them by creating a pull request for the corresponding topic branch you created when you began working on your changes.

    The Apache Distill team will then review your changes and, if they pass review, your changes will be merged.
