Code Review and New Feature Process

The policy for bringing in new features and changing existing E3SM code.

This new policy (developed by the E3SM “deep dive” team in 2022/04) brings a significant update to the 2015 Code Review Policy and it still requires a significant amount of work improving the E3SM diagnostics, CIME test suites, and developing documentation. The policy is a requirement for any development coming to the code after 2022/04 with exception of the infrastructure implementation that is being developed.

The full policy and the process is described in Code Review and New Feature Process


Please note that all E3SM team members and ESMD supported model development project PIs should familiarize themselves with this new detailed code review process so that the new developments can be tested early on to be ready for possible integration into E3SM.
