<The Development Workflow
The standard development on CocoaPods happens like so:
- Setup your development environment with Rainforest.
- Pickup an Issue . See issue classifications explained below
- Check the CONTRIBUTING requirements.
- Make a pull request.
<Picking Up Issues
- Defect: These are known bugs. The issue should also contain steps to reproduce. Feel free to fix these and submit a pull request.
- Enhancement: These are planned enhancements that have not been picked up yet. If you would like to work on one, please add a comment that you are doing so.
- Discussion: These are issues that can be non-issues, and encompass best practices, or plans for the future.

- To check: These issues may not be reproducible, or have not been vetted by a team member.
- Workaround known: These issues have had their solutions discussed, but have yet to be implemented.

CocoaPods favors small methods and many classes as convention. It is encouraged that methods are as small as possible, both for code reuse, and for ease of reading.
