Things you should do if you are a Clojure Contrib committer:

  • maintain your library and respond to questions/issues that arise
  • do your work on the master branch, or (if you are working on a significant chunk you want to keep temporarily separate) on a feature-specific branch that you create yourself.
  • coordinate with other committers before making changes to their libraries
  • accept contributions from others only if they have signed the CA (see for the list) and if they submit a patch. 

Things to avoid:

  • please do not push to the release branches (names like 1.2.x). The Clojure/core team uses these to make the official, tested release.
  • do not take non-contributor patches
  • please do not take pull requests from contributors. Patches only. Yes, it is inconvenient. Sorry.

Here's the process outline for what it takes to become a committer:

  • Get your CA on file
  • Join the clojure-dev mailing list
  • Create a JIRA account
  • Create a Confluence account as well if necessary (with the same login details; in theory they are linked and creating one should create the other but it practice it doesn't seem to work all the time)
  • Let Clojure/core know your github username and JIRA username so they can set up the correct permissions
  • Clojure/core need to create your account on as well - see below

Setting up a new contrib repo on github (thanks to Fogus for documenting this; requires Clojure organization admin privileges):

  • Create a new GitHub repo
    • Specify project name (must be approved by Clojure/core)
    • Specify description
    • Team: Contrib Commit
    • Add Post-Receive URL Service Hook: 

CA, clojure-dev ML, JIRA, Confluence,

# How I set up core.cache

* Create a new GitHub Repo
** Project Name: core.cache
** Description: A caching library for Clojure implementing various cache strategies
** Team: Contrib Commit
** Add Post-Receive URL Service Hook: (for autodoc)
** Disable Issues tab
* Create a new Jira Project
** Name: core.cache
** Key: CCACHE
** Project Lead: Fogus

Yes, please. Just follow the format in the rest of that file. I've
already done it for core.memoize and core.cache.

There are 3 more step after that, which require an admin account in

1. Create a user account on Hudson if needed
2. Run the Hudson job
3. Force Hudson to reload its configuration files
