Subject .NET Platform Contributions
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2016 11:18:42 GMT

This may be better suited to Gitter, or covered elsewhere (I've search around, so apologies
if this is a duplication)!

I've been evaluating Apache Ignite and I'm pretty excited about what it can do.  We're predominantly
a .NET stack, so I've cloned the repo and have been browsing the .NET platform code, to which
I have a couple of questions regarding contributions that I'd appreciate some feedback on:

*         Do you accept open contributions, or do I have to be an active member in the community
for a certain period to achieve contributor (not committer) status?

*         Do you have well defined contribution guidelines, for example - https://github.com/FakeItEasy/FakeItEasy/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

*         Do you have any plans to migrate the solution to Visual Studio 2015 (or VS15 when
it's out of Preview)?  The is a note about upgrading the C++ libraries when using recent VS
versions, but are there plans for an official move given that VS2010 isn't supported anymore?

*         Do you have plans to update the target framework from .NET 4.0 to .NET 4.5.* or
4.6.*?  I've found improvement suggestions for .NET Core and Standard in JIRA, but .NET 4.5
itself is over 4 years old now, and 4.6 is nearly 2 years old

*         Do you accept pull requests for work items not currently labelled against a release
in JIRA?  For example:

o   Fixing project build order dependencies (.Core doesn't build before .Examples reliably)

o   Standardising async/await methods (naming, for example)

o   Standardising IDisposable implementation

o   Performance regression tests (I can see a drive on regression test coverage, are performance
tests like NBench<https://github.com/petabridge/NBench> of interest?)

o   Inconsistent code formatting (naming, object types, etc.)

o   Migrating FxCop to Code Analysis (FxCop inspects IL instead of performing source tree
analysis, and is no longer supported)

Great project, keep up the good work!
