1. Link relevant [issues](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues) and/or [feedback items](http://feedback.gitlab.com/) from the merge request description and leave a comment on them with a link back to the MR
1. Be prepared to answer questions and incorporate feedback even if requests for this arrive weeks or months after your MR submittion
Please keep the change in a single MR as small as possible. If you want to contribute a large feature think very hard what the minimum viable change is. Can you split functionality? Can you only submit the backend/API code? Can you start with a very simple UI? The smaller a MR is the more likely it is it will be merged, after that you can send more MR's to enhance it.
We will accept a merge requests if it:
* Includes proper tests and all tests pass (unless it contains a test exposing a bug in existing code)
* Can be merged without problems (if not please use: `git rebase master`)
* Do not break any existing functionality
* Conforms to the [Ruby](https://github.com/bbatsov/ruby-style-guide) and [Rails](https://github.com/bbatsov/rails-style-guide) style guides and best practices
* Fixes one specific issue or implements one specific feature (do not combine things, send separate merge requests if needed)
* Keeps the GitLab code base clean and well structured
* Contains functionality we think other users will benefit from too
* Doesn't add unnessecary configuration options since they complicate future changes
* Contains a single commit (please use `git rebase -i` to squash commits)
For examples of feedback on merge requests please look at already [closed merge requests](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/merge_requests?assignee_id=&label_name=&milestone_id=&scope=&sort=&state=closed).
