Repo Guidelines

  • Developers work in their own forks, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.
  • If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the development team members simply pulls it.
  • If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the change may be discussed in the pull request, or the requester may be asked to start a discussion Peercoin Talk for a broader community discussion.
  • The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing. Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if they don't match the project's coding conventions (see coding.txt) or are controversial.
  • From time to time a pull request will become outdated. If this occurs, and the pull is no longer automatically mergeable; a comment on the pull will be used to issue a warning of closure. Pull requests closed in this manner will have their corresponding issue labeled 'stagnant'.
