2017-06-13Configure Git contribution guidelines for github.comLars Schneider
Many open source projects use for their contribution process. Although we mirror the Git core repository to [1] we do not use any other service. This is unknown/unexpected to a number of (potential) contributors and consequently they create Pull Requests against our mirror with their contributions. These Pull Requests become stale. This is frustrating to them as they think we ignore them and it is also unsatisfactory for us as we miss potential code improvements and/or new contributors. GitHub contribution guidelines and a GitHub Pull Request template that is visible to every Pull Request creator can be configured with special files in a Git repository [2]. Let's make use of this!
