Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRFLOW-135) Clean up git branches (remove old + implement versions)
Date Thu, 19 May 2016 16:39:13 GMT


Chris Riccomini commented on AIRFLOW-135:

I'm +1 on cutting branches for releases (instead of tags).

I'm also +1 on deleting dead branches, but could you post a list of the proposed branches
to delete so we can allow people time to notify if they have a branch that they don't want

I would bet hardly any of them are active. I think they should be deleted if possible. In
addition, we should begin using branches (as opposed to tags) to allow easy switching between
Airflow versions. Spark ( uses the format {{branch-X.X}};
others like Kafka ( simply use a version number. But this
is an important way to browse the history and, most importantly, can't be overwritten like
a tag (since tags point at commits and commits can be rebased away).
