We accept pull requests via Bitbucket or GitHub.

There are some guidelines which will make applying pull requests easier for us:

  • No tabs! Please use spaces for indentation.
  • Respect the code style.
  • Create minimal diffs - disable on save actions like reformat source code or organize imports. If you feel the source ode should be reformatted create a separate PR for this change.
  • Provide TestNG tests for your changes and make sure your changes don't break any existing tests by running mvn clean test.
