      Attempt to make it more clear what expectations exists of both

      [doc] Reduce markdown lint errors · 80d66951
      Søren Bredlund Caspersen authored
      Reduce number of markdown lint errors by moving indented codeblocks to fenced codeblocks instead.
      Notice in CONTRIBUTING.md and doc/developer-notes.md that the code in lists now render as intended in the mkdocs output.

      [doc] Add a useful link about writing good git commit messages · 41d28147
      freetrader authored
      Added a link to Chris Beam's article on good commit messages.
      The tips given there should be general enough to satisfy our
      We do not strictly enforce things like commit message length,
      formatting, content/metadata, most of our contributors generally
      and naturally adhere to the advice given in this article.
      And one can study the past project history to get a sense of
      Contributors should review the BCHN GitLab rules & guidelines,
      they contain more specific info on commit tags used etc.
      Test plan:
      - review / read the doc / approve the info

      [DOC] Remove more line length warnings (MD013) · 66b958d8
      Søren Bredlund Caspersen authored
      Remove line-length warnings (MD013) from `/*.md`
      (and one new line in `/doc/functional-tests.md`)
      Test plan: (needs markdownlint v0.25.0 or later)
      - `markdownlint -c .markdownlint.json -o /tmp/mdl.output *.md doc/*.md`
      - `grep MD013 /tmp/mdl.output | egrep -v '(bips.md|bch-upgrades.md)'`
      Output file (`/tmp/mdl.output`) should contain MD013 entries only for
      `doc/bips.md` and `doc/bch-upgrades.md)`.
      The above `grep` command should not output any lines.

      [doc] Fix the ordered list in CONTRIBUTING.md · 11a38ce2
      Søren Bredlund Caspersen authored
      Numbering was broken, starting over again and again, instead of going from 1 to 9.
      This should make the ordered list in `CONTRIBUTING.md` render correctly with `mkdocs`.
      Test plan
      Make sure you have `mkdocs` and `mkdocs-material` installed (`pip install mkdocs` and `pip install mkdocs-material` - adjust per your installation / distribution)
      Go to your working area root folder, and run the doc deployment prep commands from `.gitlab-ci.yml`:
      mkdir files-for-mkdocs
      (cd files-for-mkdocs ; ln -s ../* . ; rm -rf files-for-mkdocs)
      rm -f files-for-mkdocs/{depends,src}
      tar cf - $(find src depends -name \*.md) | ( cd files-for-mkdocs ; tar xf - )
      tar cf - src/chainparams.cpp src/crypto/sha256_sse4.cpp src/interfaces/*.h src/qt/intro.cpp src/univalue/COPYING | ( cd files-for-mkdocs ; tar xf - )
      rm -f files-for-mkdocs/doc/release-notes.md
      mkdocs build
      Then run `mkdocs serve` and browse to
      to take a look at the rendered document (and compare to previous
      version using the same doc building procedure on `master` before this change)

      [CMAKE] Enable clang-tidy · da6827e9
      Fabien authored
      This diff enables running `clang-tidy` at build time.
      The checks are defined in the `src/.clang-tidy` file, and apply to every
      subdirectories as well. For now, a single check is enabled to replace
      `boost::lexical_cast<std::string>` with `std::to_string` (see
      This check should never trigger since D5136 removes
      `boost::lexical_cast`, and our libraries are not using boost.
      Depends on D5136.
      Test Plan:
      Pre-requisite: with no clang-tidy installed:
        cmake -GNinja ..
      Check that cmake returns an error because it fails to find `clang-tidy`.
        cmake -GNinja .. -DENABLE_CLANG_TIDY=OFF
      Should return no error.
      Install `clang-tidy` version >= 8.
        cmake -GNinja ..
        ninja check-all bitcoin-bench
      Add a `boost::lexical_cast<std::string>` case in any bitcoin-abc source
      file, then run `ninja` again. Check that clang-tidy applied the fix and
      replaced it with `std::to_string`.
      Note: it seems that clang-tidy does not always replace, but sometimes
      only outputs the warning.

      Added guide for OSX users on how to install clang-format-8. · 55577b24
      TRuck authored
      Summary: Added the command that allowed me to use clang-format-8 without having to recompile llvm & clang to CONTRIBUTING.md.
      Test Plan: I ran `npm install -g clang-format@1.2.4`. I had to delete/move some files due to conflicts with another installation, but after that, running `arc diff` succeeded. A fresh installation should work with just that command; otherwise the instructions can be amended to accomodate for additional problems.

      Although the article may be useful as general advice, it seems out of place with the other articles.
      It's better to keep these articles focused on specific development-style information that people may not easily find elsewhere.

      Using flake8 code F401, unused imports are output as lint errors from
