I am sure that you are aware that the Eclipse Foundation has long had a
policy that required that contributions greater than 250 lines of code
required the creation of a Contribution Questionnaire, and a review and
approval by the IP team.
I am happy to announce that effective immediately, the requirement for
filing a CQ has been raised to 1,000 lines of code added. To verify
whether a contribution requires a CQ, use one of the following git
commands to check:
If it's committed: git log --shortstat
If not committed: git diff --stat
These commands tell you the number of insertions(+), and deletions(-).
If the total number of lines inserted (e.g. added) in a contribution is
greater than 1000 (yes, this includes comments) then a CQ is required.
I hope that this both simplifies and clarifies the expectations around
accepting contributions. The other in-bound contribution requirements
such as CLAs and signed-by remain in place unchanged.
