Alan Hayward - Jan. 23, 2019, 9:46 a.m.
The GDB wiki page has a much better contribution checklist than
that in the GDB CONTRIBUTE file.  In addition, the wiki is easier
to keep up to date with current processes.

Reduce the CONTRIBUTE file down to two short paragraphs with links
to both the contribution process and the GDB homepage.  This also
ensures anyone reading the CONTRIBUTE file for a given release has
access to the latest processes.

Is it just me, or the "You may also..." sentence is very weird?  conclusion
or inclusion?  There seems to be a missing work after "so that".

Otherwise, this LGTM, thanks.

I'd rather point at https://sourceware.org/gdb/contribute/
and then have _that_ point at some page in the wiki.
That's what I had suggested in the other thread.
The reason is that the <https://sourceware.org/gdb/contribute/>
URL is going to be more stable than a wiki link, which we can
rename, split, etc. a bit more freely.  The contribution checklist page
is quite large by now, and I've heard of people wishing for a smaller more
concise entry point.  The checklist was meant to be that, a checklist.
A "how to contribute" page may have some higher level info to
get people started.

Thanks,
Pedro Alves

Fair enough. Having the double link seemed redundant, but your
reasoning makes sense.

The sourceware contribute page itself needs an update (it currently
points to the CONTRIBUTE file!) How do we go about making that change?

Agreed. I missed that.



Wanted to avoid rewriting as much as possible. But now I’m wondering if it
maybe needs reducing down a little more.

How about the following (can repost with proper diff, but easier to read
if I just paste it)



			Contributing to GDB

GDB is a collaborative project that relies on contributions.  You can
help in this!  You may wish to fix bugs, improve testing, port GDB to
a new platform, update documentation, add new features or optimizations,
contribute to the mailing lists or offical GDB website, etc.  We welcome
all of the above and feel free to ask on the GDB mailing lists if you are
looking for feedback or for people to review a work in progress.  For
more information see:

https://sourceware.org/gdb/


In order for any code patches to be considered for submission, please
also see the contribution guide:

That has been the (mental) blocker for me thus far.  The webpages are
still in CVS somewhere.  I never touched it myself.  
Joel, can you guide us here?

AFAIK the current process is that commits go to both sourceware.org's CVS and
to another copy in gnu.org as well for the https://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/ .
I had chatted with Joel at the Cauldron about streamlining this, and the
conclusion seemed to be that there's no real blocker for making the gnu.org
version simply a redirect to sourceware.org.  That would simplify things.  The
other neat step would be to migrate to git.  :-)

Yeah.  

It'd to be good to make sure to migrate any useful info being
deleted, if not covered in the web site already, rather than just
losing it, IMHO, though.  I think most of the steps in the file
are covered by the checklist wiki, but the larger/expanded intro
text currently in gdb/CONTRIBUTE would be useful on
the https://sourceware.org/gdb/contribute/ landing page, I believe.

I'm not very keen on this sentence since there's more to contribution that
code patches: bug triaging, testing, helping users on the gdb mailing

Since this whole file is all about contributing, I think we can replace
both URLs with a single URL pointing at the contribution page, and
drop the "in order for any ..." sentence altogether.  I.e., just say:

~~~
... looking for feedback or for people to review a work in progress.  For
more information see:

https://sourceware.org/gdb/contribute/
~~~

Once there, it should be trivial and obvious for a user to reach the homepage.

There are two CVS repositories as you mentioned. One is on sourceware
(sourceware.org:/cvs/gdb/htdocs), and one is on Savannah. For now,
it is easier for me if you just send me the patch you want to commit,
and I do it. Otherwise, the re-synchronization on my end can be painful.

Do you guys know who to ask to get the redirection?

And before we do, should we perhaps consider the opposite redirection?
In other words, redirect from sourceware.org to gnu.org/software/gdb?
One strong requirement before we can consider it is that Savannah first
support git repositories. It seems to be possible:

https://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/UsingGit/

The secondary problem would then become - figuring out how to
automate the auto-update of the website upon pushing new changes.

The redirect to sourceware might make things easier, but it would
be a one-off action item, and then things would be on the GNU server.
Just not the best time for me to take on another task, unfortunately
:-(.

In the meantime, I'm happy to push changes sent to me. That part
just takes a couple of minutes each time.

For the webpage, how about the following. Everything in a [] is a link which
needs replacing with the relevant link from the list at the end (and the list

Doesn't "help in" sound odd?  I'd expect "help with" to be more
correct here?

I'd put a blank line before "For more information see:", like:
