    • How are tools like phpcs and PHPStan used by the Drupal community for contrib? Are they a part of's testing automation?
    • Starting a new D10 website from scratch in DDEV is one thing How would I typically work with an existing D10 website? Do I start with the community config, then overwrite the code, database, and files? Is there a better approach?
