  • Respect the code style.
  • Create minimal diffs - disable on save actions like reformat source code or organize imports. If you feel the source code should be reformatted create a separate PR for this change.
  • Provide JUnit tests for your changes and make sure your changes don't break any existing tests by running mvn clean test.
