14### Submitting a change for review
15
16All types of contributions are welcome, but please keep the following in mind:
17
18- If you're planning a large change, you should really discuss it in a
19  github issue or on the google group first.  This helps avoid
20  duplicate effort and spending time on something that may not be
21  merged.
22- Existing tests should continue to pass, and new tests for the
23  contribution are nice to have.
24- All code should have gone through `go fmt`
25- All code should pass `go vet`
26- All code should pass the fuzz tests: please see README-smat.md.
