Subject [Solr Wiki] Update of "HowToContribute" by kirill.lykov
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 05:37:34 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Solr Wiki" for change notification.

The "HowToContribute" page has been changed by kirill.lykov:

Corrected mistake: Big Fixes -> Bug Fixes

  If there is a patch in Jira that you think is really great, writing some "user guide" style
docs about how it works (or is suppose to work) in the wiki is a great way to help the patch
get committed:  It helps serve as a road map for what the "goal" of the issue is, what should
be possible for users to do once the issue is resolved; it helps get people who may not understand
the low level details get excited about the new functionality; and it can eventually evolve
into the final documentation once the code is committed.  (just make sure to link to the issue
so people who find your wiki page first know it's not included in Solr's main code line yet).

  This section identifies the ''optimal'' steps community member can take to submit a changes
or additions to the Solr code base.  This can be new features, bug fixes optimizations of
existing features, or tests of existing code to prove it works as advertised (and to make
it more robust against possible future changes).
  Please note that these are the "optimal" steps, and community members that don't have the
time or resources to do everything outlined on this below should not be discouraged from submitting
their ideas "as is" per "Yonik's Law of Patches" ...
