# How to contribute:
## Bug reports / Issues
* Is something broken or not working as expected? Check for an existing issue or [create a new one](https://github.com/mbleigh/acts-as-taggable-on/issues/new)
* IMPORTANT: Include the version of the gem, if you've install from git, what Ruby and Rails you are running, etc.
1. [Fork and clone the repo](https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo)
2. Install the gem dependencies: `bundle install`
3. Make the changes you want and back them up with tests.
* [Run the tests](https://github.com/mbleigh/acts-as-taggable-on#testing) (`bundle exec rake spec`)
4. Update the CHANGELOG.md file with your changes and give yourself credit
5. Commit and create a pull request with details as to what has been changed and why
* Use well-described, small (atomic) commits.
* Include links to any relevant github issues.
* *Don't* change the VERSION file.
6. Extra Credit: [Confirm it runs and tests pass on the rubies specified in the travis config](.travis.yml). I will otherwise confirm it runs on these.
How I handle pull requests:
* If the tests pass and the pull request looks good, I will merge it.
* If the pull request needs to be changed,
* you can change it by updating the branch you generated the pull request from
* either by adding more commits, or
* by force pushing to it
* I can make any changes myself and manually merge the code in.
