Submitting a pull request
Contributions of Code and documentation are managed through github pull requests. Each commit should have a commit message formatted similar to the following:
module: Capitalized, short (50 chars or less) summary More detailed explanatory text, if necessary. Wrap it to about 75 characters or so. In some contexts, the first line is treated as the subject of an email and the rest of the text as the body. The blank line separating the summary from the body is critical (unless you omit the body entirely); tools like rebase can get confused if you run the two together. Further paragraphs come after blank lines.. Signed-off-by: My Name <firstname.lastname@example.org>
It is important to have a “Signed-off-by” line on each commit - it certifies that you agree to the developer certificate of origin. It must contain your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions) and contain a current email address.
