Subject [GitHub] brooklyn-server issue #664: Add contributing guidelines and PR template
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 23:33:19 GMT
Github user ahgittin commented on the issue:

    https://github.com/apache/brooklyn-server/pull/664
  
    Most PR's we get are good and the summaries provided are almost always clear and easy
to read.  A template increases the burden on the people opening the PR which I see as counterproductive
and makes them harder to read because it discourages the contributor from just cutting to
the chase.  This particular template is onerous and patronising -- as though our goal is to
put people off.
    
    I don't see what purpose `CONTRIBUTING.md` achieves as that information is easy to find
on our web site.  Have I missed us being inundated by people saying "Help I don't know how
to contribute, if only you had another markdown file in the root" ?
    
    The point in my ML post is that we need to be less prissy and more welcoming.  This PR
takes us in the complete opposite direction.
