We welcome contributions to the extendr project. Contributions come in many forms. Please carefully read and follow these guidelines. This will help us make the contribution process easy and effective for everyone involved. It also communicates that you agree to respect the time of the developers managing and developing this project.
We take our open source community seriously and hold ourselves and other contributors to high standards of communication. By participating and contributing to this project, you agree to uphold our Code of Conduct.
Contributions can be made via Issues and Pull Requests (PRs). A few general guidelines cover both:
Issues should be used to report problems with the library, request a new feature, or to discuss potential changes before a PR is created. Please do not use Issues to request user support.
Whenever possible, please provide a minimal reproducible example (reprex) to any bug report that you are filing. The more minimal your example, the more likely that somebody else can figure out what the problem is, so please remove any code that isn’t relevant to the problem you are reporting.
Please keep issues focused on one particular problem. Don’t feel shy about opening multiple issues if you’re encountering more than one problem.
If you find an Issue that addresses the problem you’re having, please add your own reproduction information to the existing issue rather than creating a new one. Adding a reaction can also help be indicating to our maintainers that a particular problem is affecting more than just the reporter.
PRs are always welcome and can be a quick way to get your fix or improvement slated for the next release. However, please always open an Issue before submitting a PR.
In general, PRs should:
Closes #<issue number>or
Fixes #<issue number>in the body of the PR and/or the git commit message. (See the GitHub Documentation for details about linking PRs to Issues and automatically closing Issues when merging PRs.)
In general, we follow the GitHub flow development model:
Please join us on our Discord server for general conversations and questions that don’t belong into a GitHub issue.
