Version control guidelines

The version number of the project is in the form of x.x.x, where x is a number, starting from 0, and is not limited to the range 0~9. When the project is in the incubator phase, the version number is 0.x.x.

As the interfaces and annotations of Spring Boot 1 and Spring Boot 2 have been changed significantly in the Actuator module, and spring-cloud-commons is also changed quite a lot from 1.x.x to 2.0.0, we take the same version rule as SpringBoot version number.

Code of Conduct

This project is a sub-project of Spring Cloud, it adheres to the Contributor Covenant code of conduct. By participating, you are expected to uphold this code. Please report unacceptable behavior to [email protected]

Code Conventions and Housekeeping

None of these is essential for a pull request, but they will all help. They can also be added after the original pull request but before a merge.

Use the Spring Framework code format conventions. If you use Eclipse you can import formatter settings using the eclipse-code-formatter.xml file from the Spring Cloud Build project. If using IntelliJ, you can use the Eclipse Code Formatter Plugin to import the same file.

Make sure all new .java files to have a simple Javadoc class comment with at least an @author tag identifying you, and preferably at least a paragraph on what the class is for.

Add the ASF license header comment to all new .java files (copy from existing files in the project)

Add yourself as an @author to the .java files that you modify substantially (more than cosmetic changes).

Add some Javadocs and, if you change the namespace, some XSD doc elements.

A few unit tests would help a lot as well — someone has to do it.

If no-one else is using your branch, please rebase it against the current master (or other target branch in the main project).

When writing a commit message please follow these conventions, if you are fixing an existing issue please add Fixes gh-XXXX at the end of the commit message (where XXXX is the issue number).
