Contributing to Cassini distribution¶
This project uses the GitLab project forking workflow. By default, accounts on gitlab.arm.com do not have rights to create personal repositories and therefore fork existing projects. In order to contribute, users must first request access as described here.
Every commit must have at least one
Signed-off-by: line from the committer
to certify that the contribution is made under the terms of the
Developer's Certificate of Origin.
The full text of
Developer's Certificate of Origin can be found
Due to the significance of the
Developer's Certificate of Origin, part of
it is copied below.
The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for the patch, which certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to pass it on as an open-source patch. The rules are pretty simple: if you can certify the below: Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ By making a contribution to this project, I certify that: (a) The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I have the right to submit it under the open source license indicated in the file; or (b) The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source license and I have the right under that license to submit that work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part by me, under the same open source license (unless I am permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated in the file; or (c) The contribution was provided directly to me by some other person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified it. (d) I understand and agree that this project and the contribution are public and that a record of the contribution (including all personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with this project or the open source license(s) involved. then you just add a line saying:: Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <firstname.lastname@example.org> using your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions.)
Commits and patches added should follow the OpenEmbedded patch guidelines.
The component being changed in the shortlog should be prefixed with the layer name (without meta-), for example:
cassini-config: Decrease frobbing level
cassini-distro: Enable foobar v2
cassini-doc: Added foobar v2 documentation
