Contribute to Shaker

Shaker follows standard OpenStack contribution workflow as described at

Start working

  1. Clone the repo:

    $ git clone git://
  2. From the root of your workspace, check out a new branch to work on:

    $ git checkout -b <TOPIC-BRANCH>
  3. Implement your code

Before Commit

  1. Make sure your code works by running the tests:

    $ tox

By default tox executes the same set of tests as configured in Jenkins, i.e.: py34 and py27 unit tests, pep8 style check and documentation build.

  1. If there are any changes in config parameters, also do:

    $ tox -egenconfig

This job updates sample config file as well as documentation on CLI utils.

Submit Review

  1. Commit the code:

    $ git commit -a

Commit message should indicate what the change is, for a bug fix commit it needs to contain reference to Launchpad bug number.

  1. Submit the review:

    $ git review
  2. If the code is approved with a +2 review, Gerrit will automatically merge your code.

Bug Tracking

Bugs are tracked at Launchpad:
