We use simplified GitFlow branching model for Dow Jones Hammer development.

Instead of a single master branch, this workflow uses two branches to record the history of the project. The master branch stores the official release history, and the dev branch serves as an integration branch for features.

Each new feature should reside in its own branch. But, instead of branching off of master, feature branches use dev as their parent branch. When a feature is completed, it gets merged back into dev. Features should never interact directly with master.

How to report a bug

  • Ensure the bug was not already reported by searching on GitHub under Issues.
  • If you’re unable to find an open issue addressing the problem, open a new one. Be sure to include a title and clear description, as much relevant information as possible, and a code sample or an executable test case demonstrating the expected behavior that is not occurring.

How to suggest your changes

  • Open a new GitHub pull request with the patch.
  • Ensure the PR description clearly describes the problem and solution. Include the relevant issue number if applicable.
