  • Make sure to track progress upstream (i.e., on our version of rnoaa at ropensci/rnoaa) by doing git remote add upstream Before making changes make sure to pull changes in from upstream by doing either git fetch upstream then merge later or git pull upstream to fetch and merge in one step
  • Make your changes (bonus points for making changes on a new feature branch)
  • Please do write a test(s) for your changes if they affect code and not just docs
  • Push up to your account
  • Submit a pull request to home base at ropensci/rnoaa

Note: Continuous integration checks may fail because secret tokens for the NCDC API are not available in PR’s. Don’t worry about these failures UNLESS they are clearly due to code in your PR.
