BTW, since you posted to openafs-announce, I'm responding here. If
this should go elsewhere, let me know.
Under the contributors section:
4. should provide a unit test for any contribution.(*)
I suggest that there are problem some things that the developers could
agree as 'Must's and not just 'Should's. For example,
Must provide Qt-style comments for all new or modified functions,
macros, and non-local variables.
If that simply finds its way into the details for item 6:
must provide documentation for submissions which add commands or
functionality or change user-visible behavior, meeting current
(i.e., the 'current documentation standards') I'd be happy with that as well.
And I'd encourage others to think about what would make sense from a
development standpoint and make other suggestions as well.
