Oomph Contribution Guide

If you wish to contribute to Oomph, please obtain an Eclipse Gerrit account and provision your Oomph setup to use a Gerrit clone. Then you'll be able to commit your contribution to Gerrit for review. You'll also need an Eclipse account for bugzilla access and to post to the forums.

Here are some simple rules to follow for contributing to Oomph:

  1. All contributions should correspond to a bug report or feature request and each commit message should be prefixed using that bugzilla ID, i.e., [<bugzilla-id>].
  2. All code comments should be well-formed, grammatically-complete English sentences, e.g., they should start with an uppercase word and end with a period.
  3. All code should follow generally accepted Java naming conventions.
  4. All code should use the automatically enforced formatting rules so new projects are generally best created via the "Oomph->Copy Project" context menu action for an existing project.
