Subject Re: Git workflow for committers
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 13:49:43 GMT
I don't think committers should push direct to master, Its important to 
be consistent between non committers and committers so the graph is 
always the same, not moving from merge commits to linear commits.

Yes it may take a little more time at first having another committer 
review your code and then doing the merge but it will cut down on a lot 
of bugs and vastly improve the code which is a good thing. Also 
capturing the information as to who merged the commit is also important.

Committers should not have to go through github.
