Re: [] Raising the contribution limit

Thanks for the update, Mike!

In this context, is it possible to update the IP Process Cartoons:
I find them extremely useful when I want to quickly remind myself of the basic IP rules.

At the moment I find them out-dated. I miss contributions via Gerrit. Adding the rule of 1,000 LOC and how to calculate them will be very useful too.

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.
