+<h2 id="inform_community">Inform the community if Beam breaks downstream projects</h2>
+<p>There are multiple external projects depending on Beam which contain tests that
+outside of Beam repository. For example, Dataflow, Samza runner, and IBM Streams.</p>
+<p>When an external project encounters an issue caused by (a PR) in Beam
+and, in consequence, requests for a change in the Beam repository,
+the first thing is to create a JIRA entry that addresses 
+the following three questions:</p>
+  <li>Descriptions on what the issue is.</li>
+  <li>Does a revert fix it? (Or it is supposed to be fixed differently)</li>
+  <li>Is a revert the best way to fix it?</li>
+<p>It is encouraged to bring the discussion to the dev mailing list as well. 
+Ideally, after the incident, we prefer to have discussions regarding
+whether we should extend tests in Beam repository, with the goal of
+catching similar issues early in the future.</p>
