Guidelines for submitting patches
Please submit any patches against meta-dpdk to the meta-intel
mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, if your patches are
available via a public git repository, please also include a URL to
the repo and branch containing your patches as that makes it easier
for maintainers to grab and test your patches.
There are patch submission scripts available that will, among other
things, automatically include the repo URL and branch as mentioned.
Please see the Yocto Project Development Manual sections entitled
'Using Scripts to Push a Change Upstream and Request a Pull' and
'Using Email to Submit a Patch' for details.
Regardless of how you submit a patch or patchset, the patches should
at minimum follow the suggestions outlined in the 'Submitting a Change
to the Yocto Project' section in the Yocto Project Development Manual.
Specifically, they should:
- Include a 'Signed-off-by:' line. A commit can't legally be pulled
in without this.
- Provide a single-line, short summary of the change. This short
description should be prefixed by the BSP or recipe name, as
appropriate, followed by a colon. Capitalize the first character
of the summary (following the colon).
- For the body of the commit message, provide detailed information
that describes what you changed, why you made the change, and the
approach you used.
- If the change addresses a specific bug or issue that is associated
with a bug-tracking ID, include a reference to that ID in your
detailed description in the following format: [YOCTO #<bug-id>].
- Pay attention to line length - please don't allow any particular
line in the commit message to stretch past 72 characters.
- For any non-trivial patch, provide information about how you
tested the patch, and for any non-trivial or non-obvious testing
setup, provide details of that setup.
Doing a quick 'git log' in meta-dpdk will provide you with many
examples of good example commits if you have questions about any
aspect of the preferred format.
The meta-dpdk maintainers will do their best to review and/or pull in
a patch or patchset within 24 hours of the time it was posted. For
larger and/or more involved patches and patchsets, the review process
may take longer.
