dcc0a33e 42@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_issue Issue registration
bf62b306 43
dcc0a33e 44An issue is registered in Mantis bugtracker by the **Reporter** with definition of the necessary attributes (see also @ref occt_contribution_app):
bf62b306 45
dcc0a33e 46**Category** -- indicates the OCCT component, to which the issue relates.
47 (If in doubt, assign to OCCT:Foundation Classes.)
bf62b306 48
dcc0a33e 49**Severity** -- indicates the impact of the issue in the context where it was discovered.
bf62b306 50
dcc0a33e 51**Profile** -- specifies the configuration, on which the problem was detected.
52For specific configurations it is possible to specify separately platform, OS, and version.
53These fields can be left empty if the issue is not configuration-specific.
54Additional details relevant for the environment where the issue is reproduced (such as compiler version, bitness, etc.) can be provided in the **Description**.
bf62b306 55
dcc0a33e 56**Products Version** -- defines the OCCT version, on which the problem has been detected.
bf62b306 57
dcc0a33e 58It is preferable to indicate the version of the earliest known official release where the problem can be reproduced.
59If the issue is reported on the current development version of OCCT, the current development version should be used (for convenience, this version is marked by asterisk in Mantis).
60
61@note OCCT version number can be consulted in the file Standard_Version.hxx (value of OCC_VERSION_COMPLETE macro).
bf62b306 62
dcc0a33e 63**Assign to** -- developer to whom the issue will be assigned.
64 By default, it is set to **Maintainer** of the OCCT component selected in **Category** field.
65
66**Target Version** -- defines the target version for the fix to be provided.
67 By default, it is set to the current version under development.
68
69**Summary** -- a short, one sentence description of the issue.
f9e256b3 70
dcc0a33e 71The **Summary** has a limit of 128 characters.
72It should be informative and useful for the developers.
73It is not allowed to mention the issue originator, and in particular the customer, in the name of the registered issue.
74
75A good practice is to start the issue with indication of the relevant component (OCCT module, package, class etc.) to better represent its context.
76
77The summary should be given in imperative mood when it can be formulated as goal to be achieved or action to be done.
78In particular, this applies to feature requests and improvements, for instance:
79
80> *Visualization - provide a support of zoom persistent selection*
81
82If the issue reports a problem, the summary should be given in Present Simple.
83If reported problem is believed to be a regression, it is recommended to indicate this in the summary, like this:
84
85> [Regression in 6.9.0] *IGES - Export of a reversed face leads to wrong data*
86
87**Description** -- should contain a detailed definition of the nature of the registered issue depending on its type.
88
89For a bug it is required to submit a detailed description of the incorrect behavior, including the indication of the cause of the problem (if known at this stage), and details on the context where the issue has been detected.
90
91For a feature or integration request it is necessary to describe the proposed feature in details (as much as possible at that stage), including the changes required for its implementation and the main features of the new functionality.
92
93Example:
94
95> *Currently selection does not work correctly for non-zoomable objects (those defined using transform persistence). To provide correct selection for such objects, first-level (object) BVH structures must be updated on each camera change, and frustum must be rebuilt accordingly.*
96
97@note In the description and notes to the issues you can refer to another issue by its ID prefixed by number sign (e.g.: #12345), and refer to a note by its ID prefixed by tilde (e.g.: ~20123).
98These references will be expanded by Mantis into links to the corresponding issue or note.
99When the number sign or the tilde followed by digits are a part of a normal text, add a space before digits (e.g.: "face # 12345 contains ~ 1000 edges") to avoid this conversion.
100
101**Steps To Reproduce** -- allows describing in detail how to reproduce the issue.
102
103This information is crucial for the developer to investigate the cause of the problem and to create the test case.
104The optimal approach is to give a sequence of @ref occt_user_guides__test_harness "DRAW Test Harness" commands to reproduce the problem in DRAW.
105This information can also be provided as a DRAW Tcl script attached to the issue (in **Upload File** field).
106
107**Additional information and documentation updates** -- any additional information, remarks to be taken into account in Release Notes, etc..
108
109**Upload File** -- allows attaching the shapes, snapshots, scripts, documents, or modified source files of OCCT.
110
111This field can be used to attach a prototype test case in form of a Tcl script for DRAW, a C++ code which can be organized in DRAW commands, sample shapes, documents describing proposed change or analysis of the problem, or other data required for reproduction of the issue.
112Where applicable, pictures demonstrating a problem and/or desired result can be attached.
f9e256b3 113
dcc0a33e 114The newly registered issue gets status **NEW** and is assigned to the person indicated in the **Assign to** field.
115
116@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_assign Assigning the issue
117
118The description of the new issue is checked by the **Maintainer** and if it is feasible, he may assign the issue to a **Developer**.
119Alternatively, any user with **Developer** access level or higher can assign the issue to himself if he wants to provide a solution.
f9e256b3 120
dcc0a33e 121The recommended way to handle contributions is that the **Reporter** assigns the issue to himself and provides a solution.
122
123The **Maintainer** or **Bugmaster** can close or reassign the issue (in **FEEDBACK** state) to the **Reporter** after it has been registered, if its description does not contain sufficient details to reproduce the bug or explain the need of the new feature.
124That decision shall be documented in the comments to the issue in the Bugtracker.
125
126The assigned issue has status **ASSIGNED**.
127
128@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix Resolving the issue
129
130The **Developer** responsible for the issue assigned to him provides a solution including:
131
132* Changes in the code, with appropriate comments;
133* Test case (when applicable) and data necessary for its execution;
134* Changes in the user and developer guides (when necessary).
135
136The change is integrated to branch named CRxxxxx (where **xxxxx** is issue number) in the OCCT Git repository, based on current master, and containing a single commit with the appropriate description.
137Then the issue is switched to **RESOLVED** for further review and testing.
138
139The following sub-sections describe this process, relevant requirements and options, in more details.
140
141@subsubsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix_code Requirements to the code modification
f9e256b3 142
dcc0a33e 143The amount of code affected by the change should be limited to the changes required for the bug fix or improvement.
144Change of layout or re-formatting of the existing code is allowed only in the parts where meaningful changes related to the issue have been made.
f9e256b3 145
dcc0a33e 146@note If deemed useful, re-formatting or cosmetic changes affecting considerable parts of the code can be made within a dedicated issue.
f9e256b3 147
dcc0a33e 148The changes should comply with the OCCT @ref occt_dev_guides__coding_rules "Codng Rules".
149It is especially important to comment the code properly so that other people can understand it easier.
f9e256b3 150
dcc0a33e 151The modification should be tested by running OCCT tests (on the platform and scope available to **Developer**) and ensuring absence of regressions.
152In case if modification affects results of some existing test case and the new result is correct, such test case should be updated to report OK (or BAD), as descibed in @ref testmanual_details_results "Automated Test System / Interpretation of Test Results".
153
154@subsubsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix_test Providing a test case
f9e256b3 155
dcc0a33e 156For modifications affecting OCCT functionality, a test case should be created (unless already exists) and included in the commit or patch.
157See @ref testmanual_intro_quick_create "Automated Test System / Creating a New Test" for relevant instructions.
f9e256b3 158
dcc0a33e 159The data files required for a test case should be attached to the corresponding issue in Mantis (i.e. not included in the commit).
f9e256b3 160
dcc0a33e 161When the test case cannot be provided for any reason, the maximum possible information on how the problem can be reproduced and how to check the fix should be provided in the **Steps to Reproduce** field of an issue.
162
163@subsubsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix_doc Updating user and developer guides
f9e256b3 164
dcc0a33e 165If the change affects a functionality described in @ref user_guides "User Guides", the corresponding user guide should be updated to reflect the change.
f9e256b3 166
dcc0a33e 167If the change affects OCCT test system, build environment, or development tools described in @ref dev_guides "Developer Guides", the corresponding guide should be updated.
168
169The changes that break compatibility with the previous versions of OCCT (i.e. affecting API or behavior of existing functionality in the way that may require update of existing applications based on an earlier official release of OCCT to work correctly) should be described in the document @ref occt_dev_guides__upgrade "Upgrade from previous OCCT versions".
170It is recommended to add a sub-section for each change described.
171The description should provide the explanation of the incompatibility introduced by the change, and describe how it can be resolved (at least, in known situations).
172When feasible, the automatic upgrade procedure (adm/upgrade.tcl) can be extended by a new option to perform the required upgrade of the dependent code automatically.
173
174@subsubsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix_git Submission of change as a Git branch
175
176The modification of sources should be provided in the dedicated branch of the official OCCT Git repository.
177
178The branch should contain a single commit, with the appropriate commit message (see @ref occt_contribution_workflow_fix_commit "Requirements to the commit message" below).
179
180In general, this branch should be based on the recent version of the master branch.
181It is highly preferable to submit changes basing on the current master.
182In case if the fix is implemented on the previous release of OCCT, the branch can be based on the corresponding tag in Git, instead of the master.
183
184The branch name should be composed of letters **CR** (abbreviation of "Change Request") followed by the issue ID number (without leading zeros).
185It is possible to add an optional suffix to the branch name after the issue ID, e.g. to distinguish between several versions of the fix (see @ref occt_contribution_nonstd_rebase).
f9e256b3 186
dcc0a33e 187See @ref occt_dev_guides__git_guide "Guide to using GIT" for help.
f9e256b3 188
dcc0a33e 189@note When a branch with the name given according to the above rule is pushed to Git, a note is automatically added to the corresponding issue in Mantis, indicating the person who has made the push, the commit hash, and (for new commits) the description.
190
191@subsubsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix_commit Requirements to the commit message
f9e256b3 192
dcc0a33e 193The commit message posted in Git constitutes an integral part of both the fix and the release documentation.
f9e256b3 194
dcc0a33e 195The first line of the commit message should contain the Summary of the issue (starting with its ID followed by colon, e.g. "0022943: Bug in TDataXtd_PatternStd"), followed by an empty line.
f9e256b3 196
dcc0a33e 197The following lines should provide a description of the context and details on the changes made.
198The contents and the recommended structure of the description depend on the nature of the bug.
199
200In a general case, the following elements should be present:
201* **Problem** – a description of the unwanted behavior;
202* **Change** – a description of the implemented changes, including the names of involved classes / methods / enumerations etc.;
203* **Result** – a description of the current behavior (after the implementation).
f9e256b3 204
dcc0a33e 205Example:
f9e256b3 206
dcc0a33e 207> *0026330: BRepOffsetAPI_ThruSections creates invalid shape.*
208>
209> *Methods BRep_Tool::CurveOnSurface() and BRepCheck_Edge::InContext() now properly handle parametric range on a 3D curve when it is used to generate a p-curve dynamically (on a planar surface) and both the surface and the 3D curve have non-null locations.*
f9e256b3 210
dcc0a33e 211Provide sufficient context so that potential user of the affected functionality can understand what has been changed and how the algorithm works now.
212Describe reason and essence of the changes made, but do not go too deep into implementation details -- these should be reflected in comments in the code.
f9e256b3 213
dcc0a33e 214@subsubsection occt_contribution_workflow_fix_resolve Marking issue as resolved
f9e256b3 215
dcc0a33e 216To mark the change as ready for review and testing, the corresponding issue should be switched to **RESOLVED** state.
217By default, the issue gets assigned to the **Maintainer** of the component, who is thus responsible for its review.
218Alternatively, another person can be selected as a reviewer at this step.
f9e256b3 219
dcc0a33e 220When the issue is switched to **RESOLVED**, it is required to update or fill the field **Steps to reproduce**.
221The possible variants are:
f9e256b3 222
dcc0a33e 223* The name of an existing or new test case (preferred variant);
224* A sequence of DRAW commands;
225* N/A (Not required / Not possible / Not applicable);
226* Reference to an issue in the bug tracker of another project.
bf62b306 227
dcc0a33e 228@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_review Code review
bf62b306 229
dcc0a33e 230The **Reviewer** analyzes the proposed solution for applicability in accordance with OCCT @ref occt_dev_guides__coding_rules "Coding Rules" and examines all changes in the sources, test case(s), and documentation to detect obvious and possible errors, misprints, or violations of the coding style.
bf62b306 231
dcc0a33e 232If the Reviewer detects some problems, he can either:
bf62b306 233
dcc0a33e 234* Fix these issues and provide a new solution.
235 The issue can then be switched to **REVIEWED**.
bf62b306 236
dcc0a33e 237 In case of doubt or possible disagreement the **Reviewer** can reassign the issue (in **RESOLVED** state) to the **Developer**, who then becomes a **Reviewer**.
238 Possible disagreements should be resolved through discussion, which is done normally within issue notes (or on the OCCT developer’s forum if necessary).
239
240* Reassign the issue back to the **Developer**, providing detailed list of remarks. The issue then gets status **ASSIGNED** and a new solution should be provided.
241
242If Reviewer does not detect any problems, or provides a corrected version, he changes status to **REVIEWED**.
243The issue gets assigned to the **Bugmaster**.
bf62b306 244
dcc0a33e 245@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_test Testing
bf62b306 246
247 The issues that are in **REVIEWED** state are subject of certification (non-regression) testing.
dcc0a33e 248 The issue is assigned to an OCCT **Tester** when he starts processing it.
249
250 If the branch submitted for testing is based on obsolete status of the master branch, **Tester** @ref occt_contribution_nonstd_rebase "rebases" it on master HEAD.
251 In case of conflicts, the issue is assigned back to **Developer** in **FEEDBACK** status, requesting for a rebase.
252
253 Certification testing includes:
254 * Addition of new data models (if required for a new test case) to the data base;
255 * Revision of the new test case(s) added by developer, and changes in the existing test cases included in commit.
256 The **Tester** can amend tests to ensure their correct behavior in the certification environment.
257 * Building OCCT on a sub-set of supported configurations (OS and compiler), watching for errors and warnings;
258 * Execution of tests on sub-set of supported platforms (at least, one Windows and one Linux configuration), watching for regressions;
259 * Building OCCT samples, watching for errors;
260 * Building and testing of OCC products based on OCCT.
261
262If the **Tester** does not detect problems or regressions, he changes the status to **TESTED** for further integration.
bf62b306 263
dcc0a33e 264If the **Tester** detects build problems or regressions, he changes the status to **ASSIGNED** and reassigns the issue to the **Developer** with a detailed description of the problems.
265The **Developer** should analyze the reported problems and, depending on results of this analysis, either:
266* Confirm that the detected problems are expected changes and they should be accepted as a new status of the code. Then the issue should be switched to **FEEDBACK** and assigned to the **Bugmaster**.
267* Produce a new solution (see @ref occt_contribution_workflow_fix, and also @ref occt_contribution_nonstd_minor).
bf62b306 268
dcc0a33e 269@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_integrate Integration of a solution
270
271Before integration into the master branch of the repository the **Integrator** checks the following conditions:
bf62b306 272 * the change has been reviewed;
273 * the change has been tested without regressions (or with regressions treated properly);
274 * the test case has been created for this issue (when applicable), and the change has been rechecked on this test case;
bf62b306 275 * the change does not conflict with other changes integrated previously.
276
dcc0a33e 277If the result of check is successful the Integrator integrates the solution into the branch.
278The integrations are performed weekly; integration branches are named following the pattern IR-YYYY-MM-DD.
279
280Each change is integrated as a single commit without preserving the history of changes made in the branch (by rebase, squashing all intermediate commits if any), however, preserving the author when possible.
281This is done to have the master branch history plain and clean.
282The following picture illustrates the process:
bf62b306 283
dcc0a33e 284@image html OCCT_ContributionWorkflow_V3_image002.png "Integration of several branches" width=\textwidth
285@image latex OCCT_ContributionWorkflow_V3_image002.png "Integration of several branches" width=\textwidth
bf62b306 286
dcc0a33e 287The new integration branch is tested against possible regressions that might appear due to interference between separate changes.
288When the tests are OK, the integration branch is pushed as the new master to the official repository.
289The issue status is set then to **VERIFIED** and is assigned to the **Reporter** so that he could check the fix as integrated.
290
291The branches corresponding to the integrated fixes are removed from the repository by the **Bugmaster**.
292
293@subsection occt_contribution_workflow_close Closing an issue
294
295When possible, the **Reporter** should check whether the problem is actually resolved in the environment where it has been discovered, after the fix is integrated to master.
296If the fix does not actually resolve the original problem, the issue in **VERIFIED** status can be reopened and assigned back to the **Developer** for rework.
297The details on how to check that the issue is still reproducible should be provided.
298However, if the issue does resolve the problem as described in the original report, but a similar problem is discovered for another input data or configuration, or the fix has caused a regression, that problem should be registered as a separate (@ref occt_contribution_nonstd_relate "related") issue.
299
300If the fix integrated to master causes regressions, **Bugmaster** can revert it and reopen the issue.
bf62b306 301
dcc0a33e 302The **Bugmaster** closes the issue after the regular OCCT Release, provided that the issue status is **VERIFIED** and the change was actually included in the release.
303The final issue state is **CLOSED**.
bf62b306 304
dcc0a33e 305The field **Fixed in Version** of the issue is set to the OCCT version where it is fixed.
bf62b306 306
dcc0a33e 307@section occt_contribution_nonstd Additional workflow elements
308
309@subsection occt_contribution_nonstd_feedback Requesting more information or specific action
310
311If, at any step of the issue lifetime, the person responsible for it cannot process it due to absence of required information, expertise, or rights, he can switch it to status **FEEDBACK** and assign to the person who is (presumably) able to resolve the block. Some examples of typical situations where **FEEDBACK** is used are:
312
313* The **Maintainer** or the **Developer** requests for more information from the **Reporter** to reproduce the issue;
314* The **Tester** requests the **Developer** or the **Maintainer** to help him in the interpretation of testing results;
315* The **Developer** or the **Maintainer** asks the **Bugmaster** to close the issue that is found irrelevant or already fixed (see @ref occt_contribution_nonstd_autofix).
316
317In general, issues with status **FEEDBACK** should be processed as fast as possible, to avoid unjustified delays.
318
319@subsection occt_contribution_nonstd_relate Defining relationships between issues
320
321When two or more issues are related to each other, this relationship should be reflected in the issue tracker.
322It is also highly recommended to add a note to explain the relationship.
323Typical cases of relationships are:
324
325* Issue A is caused by previous fix made for issue B (A is a child of B);
326* Issue A describes the same problem as issue B (A is a duplicate of B);
327* Issues A and B relate to the same piece of code, functionality etc., in the sense that the fix for one of these issues will affect the other (A is related to B)
328
329When the fix made for one issue also resolves another one, these issues should be marked as related or duplicate.
330In general, the duplicate issue should have the same status, and, when closed, be marked as fixed in the same OCCT version, as the main one.
331
332@subsection occt_contribution_nonstd_patch Submission of a change as a patch
333
334In some cases (if Git is not accessible for the contributor), external contributions can be submitted as a patch file (generated by *diff* command) or as modified sources attached to the Mantis issue.
335The OCCT version, for which the patch is generated, should be clearly specified (e.g. as hash code of Git commit if the patch is based on an intermediate state of the master).
336
337@note Such contributions should be put to Git by someone else (e.g. the **Reviewer**), this may cause delay in their processing.
338
339@subsection occt_contribution_nonstd_rebase Updating branches in Git
bf62b306 340
dcc0a33e 341Updates of the existing branch (e.g. taking into account the remarks of the **Reviewer**, or fixing regressions) should be provided as new commits on top of previous state of the branch.
bf62b306 342
dcc0a33e 343It is allowed to rebase the branch on the new state of the master and push it to the repository under the same name (with <i>--force</i> option) provided that the original sequence of commits is preserved.
bf62b306 344
dcc0a33e 345When a change is squashed into a single commit (e.g. to be submitted for review), it should be pushed into a branch a with different name.
346
347The recommended approach is to add a numeric suffix (index) indicating the version of the change, e.g. "CR12345_5".
348Usually it is worth keeping a non-squashed branch in Git for reference.
349
350To avoid confusions, the branch corresponding to the latest version of the change should have a greater index.
351
352@note Make sure to revise the commit message after squashing a branch, to keep it meaningful and comprehensive.
353
354@subsection occt_contribution_nonstd_minor Minor corrections

356In some cases review remarks or results of testing require only minor corrections to be done in the branch containing a change.
357"Minor" implies that the correction does not impact the functionality and does not affect the description of the previously committed change.
358
359As an exception to general @ref occt_contribution_workflow_fix_git "single-commit rule", it is allowed to put such minor corrections on top of the existing branch as a separate commit, and re-submit it for further processing in the same branch, without squashing.
360
361Minor commits should have a single-line message starting with //.
362These messages will be ignored when the branch is squashed at integration.
363
364Typical cases of minor corrections are:
365
366* Amendments of test cases (including those made by the **Tester** to adjust a test script to a specific platform);
367* Trivial corrections of compilation warnings (such as removal of an unused variable);
368* Addition or correction of comments or documentation;
369* Corrections of code formatting (e.g. reversion of irrelevant formatting changes made in the main commit).

371@subsection occt_contribution_nonstd_autofix Handling non-reproducible issues
372
373Investigation of each issue starts with reproducing it on current development version (master).
374
375If it cannot be reproduced on the current master, but can be reproduced on one of previous releases (or previous state of the master), it is considered as solved by a change made for another issue.
376If that "fixing" issue can be identified (e.g. by parsing Git log), it should be set as related to that issue.
377The issue should be switched to **FEEDBACK** and assigned to the **Bugmaster** for further processing.
378
379The **Bugmaster** decides whether it is necessary to create a test case for that issue, and if so may assign it to the **Developer** or the **Tester** to create a test.
380The issue then follows the standard workflow.
381
382Otherwise, if the issue is fixed in one of previous releases, the **Bugmaster** closes it setting the appropriate value in **Fixed in Version** field, or, if the issue is fixed after the last release, switches it to **VERIFIED** status.
383
384If the issue cannot be reproduced due to an unclear description, missing data, etc., it should be assigned back to the **Reporter** in **FEEDBACK** status, requesting for more information.
385The **Reporter** should provide additional information within one month; after that time, if no new information is provided, the issue should be closed by the **Bugmaster** with resolution **Unable to reproduce**.
