Contribution to EasyList via Github

Post by MrNoName » Sun Feb 04, 2018 7:24 pm

I found a page that gets broken by a EasyPrivacy filter and wanted to fix it, commit it and send a pull request back to the main project.
After I've taken a look at the previous commits, it looks like they all have a very consistent commit messages etc.
Now I'm curious, how can I contribute to EasyList? What do these commit prefixes "M:/P:/A:" even mean?
I already created an issue on Github that fits to my fixes. Can I just commit it as "?: #issuenumber"?

Sorry, if you've already answered my questions elsewhere but I couldn't find any answers.

when a commit message is sent, you must follow a particular syntax, the commit initial, followed by a parenthetical comment detailing the reasons for the change (not required but recommended), then the URL of the page that requires the addition of a filter.

Here are the 3 possible initials of commit

A: (as Addition) : means that a filter to block an advertisement has been added
P: (as Problem) : means that a problem has been fixed, for example by adding an exception in the case of a video that does not start, or in the case of an anti-adblock.
M: (as Moved or Modified) : means that a filter has been moved, added or deleted without being linked to a particular URL. This initial does not need to be followed by a URL.

e.g of pull requests ... d79+is%3A*
