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

danielcompton02:10:23

oops, too late

danielcompton02:10:25

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.

danielcompton02:10:44

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

alexmiller02:10:56

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

danielcompton02:10:37

I couldn’t see anything under the “Contributing section”. There’s http://dev.clojure.org/display/community/Contributing+FAQ but it doesn’t give any info on what kinds of contributions are wanted

alexmiller02:10:08

Which is admittedly pretty buried

ghadi02:10:10

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

danielcompton04:10:35

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

michaelblume18:10:57

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

alexmiller18:10:10

it might change. just not through a patch.
