Formalized Contributor and Reviewer Expectations

Keith Short

All -

The Process Working Group has published Contributor and Reviewer Expectations for working with the Zephyr project.

The Process Working Group encourages everyone to familiarize themselves with these expectations.

Some highlights:
  • Contributors encouraged to submit smaller, easier to review PRs
  • Defined escalation process for PRs that have stalled
  • Defined priorities for reviewers
  • Reviewers discouraged from expanding scope, or introducing feature creep on PRs
The goal of these expectations is to improve the velocity of reviewing and merging PRs.
