This document describes how to contribute changes to pycloudlib.
Get the Source¶
The following demonstrates how to obtain the source from Launchpad and how to create a branch to hack on.
It is assumed you have a Launchpad account and refers to your launchpad user as LP_USER throughout.
git clone https://git.launchpad.net/pycloudlib cd pycloudlib git remote add LP_USER ssh://LP_USER@git.launchpad.net/~LP_USER/pycloudlib git push LP_USER master git checkout -b YOUR_BRANCH
The makefile can be used to create a Python virtual environment and do local testing:
# Creates a python virtual environment with all requirements make venv . venv/bin/activate
The docs directory has its own makefile that can be used to install the dependencies required for document generation.
Documentation should be written in Markdown whenever possible.
When making changes please keep the following in mind:
- Keep pull requests limited to a single issue
toxto execute style and lint checks
- Use Google styling for docstrings
- When adding new clouds please add detailed documentation under the
docsdirectory and code examples under
- 4 spaces, no tabs
Submit a Merge Request¶
To submit your merge request first push your branch:
git push -u LP_USER YOUR_BRANCH
Then navigate to your personal Launchpad code page:
And do the following:
- Click on your branch and choose ‘Propose for merging’
- Target branch: set to ‘master’
- Enter a commit message formatted as follows:
topic: short description Detailed paragraph with change information goes here. Describe why the changes are getting made, not what as that is obvious. Fixes LP: #1234567
The submitted branch will get auto-reviewed by a bot and then a developer in the pycloudlib-devs group will review of your submitted merge.
Do a Review¶
Pull the code into a local branch:
git checkout -b <branch-name> <LP_USER> git pull https://git.launchpad.net/<LP_USER>/pycodestyle.git merge_request
Merge, re-test, and push:
git checkout master git merge <branch-name> tox git push origin master
