Ways to contribute
Identify and create issues
If you encounter an issue while using PWA Studio or you have a suggestion for a new feature, let us know by creating an issue. Provide as much detail as you can to help us reproduce or analyze the issue before prioritizing it.
When the issue is created, it is placed in the Backlog column of the Community Backlog project. Contact someone from the Community Advisory Board to bring the issue to our attention and we will add the help wanted label to it.
Please avoid creating GitHub issues asking for help on bugs in your own project that are outside the scope of this project.
Grooming new issues
Every week, the Community Advisory Board meets to look at the Backlog column of the Community Backlog project. The board grooms the backlog issues and moves issues that are well-defined and has value to the Prioritized column.
If an issue does not provide enough details or provides no value, we will leave a comment and give you an opportunity to respond. If there is no response before the next grooming session, the issue is closed.
Select a groomed issue
The main way to contribute to the project is by working on an issue. Look through the Prioritized column in the Community Backlog for issues that are available for you to work on.
Do not attempt to work on something unrelated to the issues inside the Prioritized column.
If you see an issue you would like to work on in the Prioritized column, notify a Community Maintainer in the issue comments (by using @) to let them know you are interested. The Community Maintainer will follow up with you to make sure you understand the scope of the changes being asked for in the issue.
After the Community Maintainer assigns the issue to you, it is moved to the In Progress column of the Community Backlog to prevent others from picking up the issue.
Working on the solution
As a contributer, you should familiarize yourself with the project’s coding standards and conventions.
The issue will provide you with guidance for what we think the solution should look like. If you are unsure about anything, reach out to anyone in the Community Advisory Board and we will provide more details.
To get your contribution accepted, you must sign Adobe’s Contributor License Agreement (CLA). You only need to sign the CLA once.
PR review process
After you submit your PR, the Community Advisory Board will assign one or more reviewers to look over your solution and ensure quality and adherence to standards. As the Directly Responsible Individual for the issue, you are expected to address all feedback before the issue is sent to our QA and merged.
If at any point in the review cycle you have commitments preventing you from addressing feedback, or if there is a suggestion you do not understand, please let us know! We are happy to pair program or complete those changes for you to help push the PR across the finish line.
If you would like to do a demo of your PR at our weekly community sync on Fridays, let a Community Maintainer know so you can be added to the schedule.
