Git - Documentation

Contributing to a Git repository of mine? Here’s what you need to know:

  1. You need to add your Signed-off-by: to every commit (with the one and ONLY exception being reverts)
  2. I reserve the right to deny or otherwise ignore pull requests for whatever reason (including forgetfulness).
  3. If submitting via email, please direct your patches and pull requests to This is my email for git-related operations and is what I use to sign-off all commits to my repos.


Should you change your email address at any time, we ask that you add it to the .mailmap file on staging so that our Git clients are up-to-date. (Don’t worry, it’ll flow upstream to master quickly.)
