Changes to Component Interfaces (APIs)

  1. Discuss proposed changes on higgins-dev and gather consensus.
  2. Locally implement the agreed-upon change (may take days or weeks).
  3. Announce to higgins-dev that the change is ready.
  4. Announce that the changes will be checked in on a certain date. Negotiate with others on the date as required.
  5. Barring any further contention, check in on the agreed-upon date.
