  • use appropriate tags in gh issue such as Gen2 or VISS
  • anyone in the group can make a commit and create a pull request. be sure to associate issues with commits and pull requests
  • if you want to get an individual to respond to an issue or review pull request explicitly, raise their awareness by using @git_username convention, eg @tguild and if not responsive try by email addressed to them cc with link to github
  • allow for seven days to review a pull request and endeavor to get reaction from stakeholders when known
  • do not merge your own pull requests, those with permission to handle pull requests in this repo is limited to chairs (including past esp for VISS), myself and editors
