#REDIRECT [[Development Resources/Handling Git Contributions]]
 
+
Git provides makes it easy to wrap and indefinitely persist contributions along with metadata. Specifically, contributions delivered via Git are packed into commit records that include the identity of the contributor, dates, comments, etc.
+
 
+
Project information pages include a block that looks something like this:
+
 
+
[[Image:Contribute section.png]]
+
 
+
The very first paragraph contains a link to this page. Project-specific "how to contribute" pages provide a similar link.
+
 
+
==The Contribution==
+
 
+
The contribution must be packaged as a Git commit record.
+
 
+
The contribution must be delivered to the Eclipse project as a pull request, or via Gerrit push.
+
 
+
The contribution must have the author field set to the contributor's credentials (name and email address).
+
 
+
The contributor must certify the contribution. Specifically, the contributor must assert the following:
+
 
+
<div style="padding:5px;margin:5px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px">
+
# I have authored 100% of the content I'm contributing;
+
# I have the rights to donate the content to Eclipse; and
+
# I contribute the content under the EPL
+
</div>
+
 
+
This certificate of origin must be asserted by adding a "Signed-off-by" line to the Git commit record's message using the author's credentials; e.g.
+
 
+
<pre>Make more space for the hAxis on bar charts.
+
 
+
The entries on the hAxis on bar charts were being truncated, making them
+
pretty useless. By increasing the vertical space available, they render
+
much better.
+
 
+
Signed-off-by: Wayne Beaton <wayne@eclipse.org></pre>
+
 
+
Note that the EGit commit dialog has a handy button that will add this message for you:
