CONTRIBUTING: Clarify choice of master or release branch as a base

parent 89d00bfc
......@@ -29,6 +29,8 @@ To contribute patches:
#. Base all new work on the upstream ``master`` branch.
Base work on the upstream ``release`` branch only if it fixes a
regression or bug in a feature new to that release.
If in doubt, prefer ``master``. Reviewers may simply ask for
a rebase if deemed appropriate in particular cases.
#. Create commits making incremental, distinct, logically complete changes
with appropriate `commit messages`_.
#. Push a topic branch to a personal repository fork on GitLab.
