@alexmiller: would there be any interest in a patch to fix trailing whitespace in clojure.test?


oops, too late


It could be helpful for me (and others) to have some written documentation on JIRA outlining Core’s attitude towards contributions, and what types of patches are encouraged or discouraged.


I’m not asking for a change in the process, just clarity into the thought process

There is actually a page with this intent on the wiki but I don't think it's very up to date


I couldn’t see anything under the “Contributing section”. There’s but it doesn’t give any info on what kinds of contributions are wanted

Alex Miller (Clojure team)02:10:08

Which is admittedly pretty buried


There was a recent ticket on splicing macros that doesn't tick those boxes


That’s a good start, but it would be helpful to give some concrete examples


might be worth adding “yes, we know the clojure codebase is badly formatted and hard to read; this will never change; deal with it” to the document, maybe people would stop asking

it might change. just not through a patch.
