Contribution Process - draft for review


EdgeX TSC members, community members and those with interest in EdgeX Foundry,

Per our last face-to-face TSC meeting in Orlando this January, there was a call for a process to be put in place to review and hopefully accept code and other contributions – specifically large contributions to our community.  I created a draft process document and requested working group leads to provide comment.  After incorporating comment received from them, we are ready to present to you the draft contribution process for feedback.

You can find the process outlined on the Wiki here:

This page in the Wiki will eventually be the home of this process once approved by the TSC.

I’d like this to be discussed openly during upcoming TSC and working group meetings and I also invite public comment via:

  • The EdgeX Email reflectors
  • Rocket Chat (General channel)
  • Send me comments directly (james_white2@...)

After a week of comments, and depending on what feedback is received, I’d like to get this into the TSC for a ratification vote on Feb 13th and start to get some outstanding efforts by groups like Samsung into the approved process right after that.
