* If your patch is not getting reviewed or you need a specific person to review it, you can @-reply a reviewer asking for a review in the pull request or a comment, or you can ask for a review on IRC channel [#prometheus](https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#prometheus) on irc.freenode.net (for the easiest start, [join via Riot](https://riot.im/app/#/room/#prometheus:matrix.org)).
* Add tests relevant to the fixed bug or new feature.
## Dependency management
The Prometheus project uses [Go modules](https://golang.org/cmd/go/#hdr-Modules__module_versions__and_more) to manage dependencies on external packages. This requires a working Go environment with version 1.11 or greater installed.
All dependencies are vendored in the `vendor/` directory.
To add or update a new dependency, use the `go get` command:
```bash
# Pick the latest tagged release.
go get example.com/some/module/pkg
# Pick a specific version.
go get example.com/some/module/pkg@vX.Y.Z
```
Tidy up the `go.mod` and `go.sum` files and copy the new/updated dependency to the `vendor/` directory:
```bash
# The GO111MODULE variable can be omitted when the code isn't located in GOPATH.
GO111MODULE=on go mod tidy
GO111MODULE=on go mod vendor
```
You have to commit the changes to `go.mod`, `go.sum` and the `vendor/` directory before submitting the pull request.
