Subject [jira] [Commented] (RNG-37) Ziggurat algorithm
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2017 22:42:00 GMT

Gilles commented on RNG-37:
---------------------------

{{git}} reports a conflict when I try to pull the latest set of changes ("fixes 3"):
{noformat}
You have unmerged paths.
  (fix conflicts and run "git commit")
  (use "git merge --abort" to abort the merge)

Unmerged paths:
  (use "git add <file>..." to mark resolution)

        both added:      commons-rng-sampling/src/main/java/org/apache/commons/rng/sampling/distribution/ZigguratGaussianSampler.java
{noformat}

By the way, Olga, the log must be useful for later review; a message like "fixes" is useless.
 If the change has improved the Javadoc; the message can just be "Javadoc"; if it fixes problems
signaled by a reporting tool, the message would be like "Avoid warning from <toolname>"
etc.  If the code is modified in a non-obvious, it's always nice to summarize the changes
for the log.
