Before you make a substantial pull request, you should always file an issue and make sure someone from the team agrees that it’s a problem. If you’ve found a bug, create an associated issue and illustrate the bug with a minimal reprex.
- We recommend that you create a Git branch for each pull request (PR).
- Look at the GitHub Actions build status before and after making changes. The
READMEshould contain badges for any continuous integration services used by the package.
- We recommend the tidyverse style guide. You can use the styler package to apply these styles, but please don’t restyle code that has nothing to do with your PR.

- For user-facing changes, add a bullet to the top of
NEWS.mdbelow the current development version header describing the changes made followed by your GitHub username, and links to relevant issue(s)/PR(s).
