  • 33. Lets bring back this boy.
  • 34. He saw a bug in the CodeLine 55 and 57 were duplicate lines.
  • 35. STEP 1(A). Sign the CLA, Every developer needs to sign theIndividual Contributor License agreement.(B) Create a Launchpad Account( if you dont have one.Its a must.(C). Add yourself to the contributors wiki(D). Request membership in the openstack­clagroup on Launchpad. Membership in this group isrequired in order to submit code changes.
  • 36. 2. The Environment Setup Bug was in Tempest● Get the source code of tempest project from the github repo.● Install git on your local machine. Ex: On ubuntu just type sudo apt­get install git­core● Configure Your user name and password: git config ­­global "Firstname Lastname" git config ­­global ""● Install git­review tool On ubuntu: sudo apt­get install git­review On other unix like systems: pip install git­review
  • 37. STEP 3: Getting the Codegit clone git://
  • 38. STEP 4: Fix the Bug● Enter in to tempest directory and let git­review tool to configure your project. Make sure your gerrit/launchpad user name is the same as the current running user. $ cd tempest $ git review ­s● Get the latest upstream changes: $ git remote update $ git checkout master $ git pull origin master $ git checkout ­b●
  • 39. ● Remove the duplicate line and save it.● Now commit your change with a commit message. You can read more about commit messages on s http :// . $git commit ­am “Removed the duplicate line from”● Finally send the code for review. $ git review
  • 40. After you submit a changeAny Openstack developer may propose orcomment on a change (including voting +1/0/­1on it).
