When you become a committer

Welcome to being a committer!  Here are some things you should know:

  • In order to not break the WordPress/WordPress GitHub sync, when you become a committer please message Mark Jaquith with your WordPress.org SVN username and GitHub.com e-mail address.
  • Join the #core-committers channel on Slack.  This channel is for onboarding and questions from committers about the act of committing. Tips and tricks for SVN. If something is ready for commit and other code related discussion should take place in #core.
  • Please add svnusername@git.wordpress.org (e.g.pento@git.wordpress.org) to your GitHub account: https://github.com/settings/emails . This will allow the new GitHub mirror (https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-develop) to correctly attribute your commits. GitHub will try to send a verification email, but it won’t be delivered. There’s no need to verify this email address for commit attribution purposes.
