      Description

      Like other ASF projects, Shindig project should define this kind of guide. Here are some generic rules:

      • Search the Wiki or Mail Lists
      • Report errors in the code/documentation by submitting patches in Jira
      • Respect developers conventions
      • Suggest developer environment

      Other ASF resources:
      http://www.apache.org/dev/contrib-email-tips.html

      Also, IMHO to improve the health of the Shindig project, I propose other project rules, my 2 cents please comments

      • forbid mail replies on a Jira issue on shindig-dev@ , always comments in jira. Reasoning: traceability (see SHINDIG-237)
      • make patch related to only one issue. Forbid unrelated codes for an issue. Reasoning: traceability, decrease side effects (see SHINDIG-257)
      • make small svn commits and one commit for one jira issue. Reasoning: traceability, commit readingness
      • using an unique commit message template. Reasoning: quality, tracking informations (specially potential committers)
