It's useful to include links to relevant cards/tickets, other PRs, dbt docs, and screenshots of updated DAGs. - Explain in detail any breaking changes after merging this code in production, or what needs to be done to merge the code successfully. - Show a "green" passing CI build, or explain any failing tests. You can create _templates_ for pull request descriptions that will serve as helpful guides to future contributors!* --- # In progress? - WIP PRs can be nice ways to share, collaborate, and comment on code, even if it's not merge-ready - Some hosting platforms / organizations have **draft** pull requests enabled - Others adopt a naming convention: "WIP" or "DO NOT MERGE" - **_Caveat:_** At present, dbt Cloud will trigger CI from _all_ new commits pushed to an open PR (draft or otherwise) ??? The dbt Cloud trigger is something we're thinking about changing! --- # No code yet? If you... - find a bug - have an idea for an improvement - want to share some long-term thinking ### _Open an [issue](https://guides.github.com/features/issues/)!_ Things break and people have ideas all the time. If you get into a habit now of communicating bugs, problems, and in-progress work to your colleagues early and often, you'll thank yourself later.
