- "Work in progress" pull requests are allowed to be submitted, but should be clearly labeled as such and should not be merged until all tests pass and the code has been reviewed.
- For changes to Rust code
make test-rustproduces no test failures
make clippyruns without emitting any warnings or errors.
make rustfmtdoes not produce any changes to the code.
- For changes to Kotlin code
make test-kotlinruns without emitting any warnings or errors.

When submitting a PR:

This project is production Mozilla code and subject to our engineering practices and quality standards. Every patch must be peer reviewed by a member of the Glean core team.
Reviewers are defined in the CODEOWNERS file and are automatically added for every pull request. Every pull request needs to be approved by at least one of these people before landing.
The submitter needs to decide on their own discretion whether the changes require a look from more than a single reviewer or any outside developer. Reviewers can also ask for additional approval from other reviewers.
