Write useful commit messages.
If your commit is changing a specific module in the code and not touching other parts of the codebase (as should be the case 99% of the time), consider writing a useful commit message that also mentions which module was changed.
For example, a message like:
is not as clear as
crypto/keypair: Added foo method for Bar struct.
Also keep in mind that commit messages can be longer than a single line, so use it to your advantage to explain your commit and intentions.
Whenever a major change or sub-project is completed, a summary must be noted in the ChangeLog. Think of this as a bulletin board where the rest of the team is notified of important progress.
As we move through the stages, the current yyyy-mm-dd marker is updated with the current date, and a new section above is created.
To ensure every contributor uses the same code style, make sure
cargo fmt before committing. You can force yourself
to do this by creating a git
pre-commit hook like the following:
#!/bin/sh if ! cargo fmt -- --check >/dev/null; then echo "There are some code style issues. Run 'cargo fmt' to fix it." exit 1 fi exit 0
Place this script in
.git/hooks/pre-commit and make sure it's
executable by running
chmod +x .git/hooks/pre-commit.
Our library heavily depends on cargo features. Currently
there are more than 650 possible combinations of features to
build the library. To ensure everything can always compile
and works, we can use a helper for
Makefile provided in the repository is already set up to use it,
so it's enough to install
cargo hack and run
These are not hard and fast rules, but guidance for team members working together. This allows us to coordinate more effectively.
|gm||good morning||Reporting in|
|gn||good night||Logging off for the day|
|+++||thumbs up||Understood, makes sense|
|afk*||away from keyboard||Shutting down the computer so you will lose messages sent to you|
|b*||back||Returning back after leaving|
|brb||be right back||If you are in a meeting and need to leave for a few mins. For example, maybe you need to grab a book.|
|one sec||one second||You need to search something on the web, or you are just doing the task (example: opening the file).|
* once we have proper syncing implemented in ircd, these will become less relevant and not needed.
Another option is to run your ircd inside a persistant tmux session, and never miss messages.
