Contributing to a Luggage Feature

Contributing to an individual Luggage feature requires a bit of setup before you are ready to create a pull request. You will need to fork the desired Luggage feature and create pull requests to the development branch from there. There exists already comprehensive documentation to help you understand Luggage's Git architecture. We will be following the same method as described there, but with an individual Luggage feature. So let's get started!

How to set up Luggage within a Wordpress root:

  • Separate the DocumentRoot(s):
    Luggage sites should be installed outside of the wordpress document root. For example, on one LAS web server, we are doing this in /srv/luggage/<deptcode>/<site>.
  • The Virtualhost should be modified to add an alias for the site under (and yet outside of) the wordpress installation.
