This outlines how to propose a change to PhaseTypeR.

Did you find a typo?

You can fix typos, spelling mistakes, or grammatical errors in the documentation directly using the GitHub web interface, as long as the changes are made in the source file. This generally means you’ll need to edit roxygen2 comments in an .R, not a .Rd file. You can find the .R file that generates the .Rd by reading the comment in the first line.

Did you find a bigger mistake?

If you found a bug and want to make a change, you can file a issue, and the PhaseTypeR team will review your petition. You the issue can be filed at by writing a minimal example that illustrates the bug.

If you want to fix a bug yourself by changing the code, you can contribute to the PhaseTypeR project by creating a pull request with the proposed fix. You can take the following steps:

  • Fork the package and clone onto your computer. If you haven’t done this before, we recommend using usethis::create_from_github("rivasiker/PhaseTypeR", fork = TRUE).

  • Install all development dependencies with devtools::install_dev_deps(), and then make sure the package passes R CMD check by running devtools::check(). If R CMD check doesn’t pass cleanly, it’s a good idea to ask for help before continuing.

  • Create a Git branch for your pull request (PR). We recommend using usethis::pr_init("brief-description-of-change").

  • Make your changes, commit to git, and then create a PR by running usethis::pr_push(), and following the prompts in your browser. The title of your PR should briefly describe the change. The body of your PR should contain Fixes #issue-number.

  • For user-facing changes, add a bullet to the top of (i.e. just below the first header).

Please, make sure to keep the code style using the following guidelines:
