When you send your request, make ``develop`` the destination branch on the
[Spack repository](https://github.com/LLNL/spack).
Before you send a PR, your code should pass the following checks:
* Your contribution will need to pass the `spack test` command.
Run this before submitting your PR.
* Also run the `share/spack/qa/run-flake8-tests` script to check for PEP8 compliance.
To encourage contributions and readability by a broad audience,
Spack uses the [PEP8](https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/) coding
