Being one of the most successful open source projects to date, WebKit development process consists of a series of protocols and strict policies in order to obtain committer and reviewer status. Blink follows a similar approach with committers and scoped code owners, in a similar fashion as Linux Kernel does with its subsystem maintainers. Their open source success is due to not only solid support from major technology companies, but also to the high quality and automated testing performed on patches before submission. In this presentation, Bruno explains how the development process of both WebKit and Blink projects are - from submitting well-tested patches with strict policies to check, get review from community, and commit upstream via commit-queue system (including early warning system bots). This is a very practical talk with live demonstrations of patch submissions on both projects.
