Check-in guidelines

Please be careful before a check in to make sure:

  • All the code you are about to check in has reasonable test coverage. If you want to check in partial code in order to collaborate remotely, do so in a branch.

  • All the tests pass. Running individual tests for the code you are working on is fine while developing, but immediately before a check in, all tests must be run.

    Build environments based on buildout usually do so by running:

    bin/test --all
  • Use ‘git status’ to make sure you have added any new files to the repository. Alternatively you could make a fresh checkout before running the tests.

  • Please be aware of the version of Python you use. The recommended and supported versions of Python vary over time (although they do so slowly).
