Patches to intel-gpu-tools are very much welcome, we really want this to be the
universal set of low-level tools and testcases for the Intel kernel gfx driver
on Linux and similar platforms. So please bring on porting patches, bugfixes,
improvements for documentation and new tools and testcases.
A short list of contribution guidelines:
- Please submit patches formatted with git send-email/git format-patch or
Development mailing list for IGT GPU Tools <email@example.com>
For a transition period patches are accepted on both the igt-dev mailing list
and the former intel-gfx mailing list (with the appropriate patch
subjectprefix, see below).
During the transition period, feel free to send patches to both lists if you
have a need to do so, as they will get deduplicated so they only appear and
are tested in one Patchwork instance.
Intel GFX discussion <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Please use --subject-prefix="PATCH i-g-t" so IGT patches are easily
identified in the massive amount mails on intel-gfx. To ensure this is always
done, meson.sh (and autogen.sh) will run:
git config format.subjectprefix "PATCH i-g-t"
on its first invocation.
- intel-gpu-tools is MIT licensed and we require contributions to follow the
developer's certificate of origin: http://developercertificate.org/
- When submitting new testcases please follow the naming conventions documented
in the generated documentation. Also please make full use of all the helpers
and convenience macros provided by the igt library. The semantic patch
lib/igt.cocci can help with the more automatic conversions.
- Patches need to be reviewed on the mailing list. Exceptions only apply for
testcases and tooling for drivers with just a single contributor (e.g. vc4).
In this case patches must still be submitted to the mailing list first.
Testcase should preferably be cross-reviewed by the same people who write and
review the kernel feature itself.
- When patches from new contributors (without commit access) are stuck, for
anything related to the regular releases, issues with packaging and
integrating platform support or any other intel-gpu-tools issues, please
contact one of the maintainers (listed in the MAINTAINERS file) and cc the
igt-dev mailing list.
- Changes to the testcases are automatically tested. Take the results into
account before merging.
