Direct Committing

Committing direct is not allowed excepting few cases.

Release Manager can directly commit when he works for releasing.

In other cases, anyone must work in his own clone.

Commit Messages

In merging, commit messages must follow the following rule:
  • A message must be written in English. A message can contain other languages, but that must be explained in English.
  • A message must contain related ticket ID. The ID must be specified with "refs" or "fixes" keyword. We have useful hook for keeping it:
    e.g. "Added ability to delete member from the mobile_backend application (refs #1)", "Added ability to configure gadgets from the mobile_backend application. Adding support to manage SNS from mobile is now completed. (fixes #1)"
  • A message must tell everyone what the commit is.

A commit that doesn't follow this rule, most likely is rejected.


If you developed something or got "Pull Request", please merge it. After merging, you must check changes. If the changes has some faults, contact author about it to fix them.

If changes looks fine, push it to shared repository, and change a status of the related ticket to "Pending Review".
