Frequently asked questions about contributing to Apache Beam.
What should I do after the committer reviews my PR?
The reviewer should give the Looks Good to Me (LGMT) in the PR and then you (the author of the pull request) should rebase, squash, or split, the commits so that the history is useful.
How do I get started contributing to Apache Beam?
Whom should do I ask if I am stuck?
How can I opt-in to reviewing pull requests?
- Go to https://github.com/apache/ repo.
- Find the deepest sub-directory that contains the files you want to be a reviewer for.
- Go to the OWNERS file.
- Add your Github username to the file.
- Create a new OWNERS file if necessary.
The Beam project currently uses the
reviewers key in the OWNERS file and no other features, as reviewer selection is still manual.
Why can't I assign a Jira issue to myself?
Only ASF Jira contributors can be assigned issues. To get permission to do so, email the dev@ mailing list to ask to be a contributor in the Beam issue tracker.
