Contribution Flow ¶
This is a rough outline of what a contributor’s workflow looks like:
- Make a fork of the repository within your GitHub account
- Create a topic branch in your fork from where you want to base your work
- Make commits of logical units
- Make sure your commit messages are with the proper format, quality and descriptiveness (see below)
- All commits must be:
- Signed using GPG (see Signing commits in GitHub )
- Signed off with the line
Signed-off-by: <Your-Name> <Your-email>. See related GitHub blogpost about signing off .
Note: Signing off on a commit is different than signing a commit, such as with a GPG key.
- Push your changes to the topic branch in your fork
- Create a pull request containing that commit
Kubeapps maintainers team follow the GitHub workflow and you can find more details on the GitHub flow documentation .
Before submitting your pull request use the following checklist:

- Check the commits and commits messages and ensure they are free from typos.
- Make sure all the commits have been properly signed with GPG and contain the signoff.
