Please ensure that your merge request meets the contribution acceptance criteria.
When having your code reviewed and when reviewing merge requests please take the
[code review guidelines](doc/development/code_review.md) into account.
### Getting your merge request reviewed, approved, and merged
There are a few rules to get your merge request accepted:
1. Your merge request should only be **merged by a [maintainer][team]**.
1. If your merge request includes only backend changes [^1], it must be
**approved by a [backend maintainer][team]**.
1. If your merge request includes only frontend changes [^1], it must be
**approved by a [frontend maintainer][team]**.
1. If your merge request includes frontend and backend changes [^1], it must
be approved by a frontend **and** a backend maintainer.
1. To lower the amount of merge requests maintainers need to review, you can
ask or assign any [reviewers][team] for a first review.
1. If you need some guidance (e.g. it's your first merge request), feel free
to ask one of the [Merge request coaches][team].
1. The reviewer will assign the merge request to a maintainer once the
reviewer is satisfied with the state of the merge request.
### Contribution acceptance criteria
