When you are ready to have your patch reviewed and committed, please do so using Bugzilla by following the process described below.
Submitting Patches for Review
To have your changes accepted into a main-line Lustre branch, your code must be reviewed and approved. Following these steps will speed up review of your changes and increase the likelihood of success:
2. Generate a patch with the "-upN" flags set to diff or cvs diff. Please do not send other kinds of patches unless your reviewer requests them.
- Provide the patch as an Attachment (click on "Add an Attachment")
- Select the "patch" box.
- Edit the new attachment. Under "Flags" select "Review" - is this correct?-I don't see this entry in Bugzilla and set the flag to a question mark (?).
If working with an Lustre internal engineer (not a new bug), set the Inspection tag to "?" and take the owner of the bug (Assigned to field) - copy and past into field next to "?" the email address of the engineer who owns the bug. If submitting new bug with patch attached following normal bug submission procedure. Support team will assign bug as appropriate.
- (Still OK) Enter the email address of the person who should review. If you have not been collaborating with someone and don't know who should review your work, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Click on "commit" to submit the attachment update.
4. One or more reviewers will submit comments regarding your patch. Iterate the patch until you receive approval or the bug is closed.
5. Once you have approval, commit the patch (or, if you do not have CVS access, the internal engineer assigned to the bug will direct the bug appropriately or land the change). Include the bug number and reviewer in the commit message, along with a concise description of the change.
Note: This process applies even if you have write access to the CVS tree. If you do not follow these steps, then expect your changes to be backed out of the tree without warning.
