Subject [allura:tickets] #8116 Branches directly from Tickets.
Date Sun, 14 Aug 2016 15:28:37 GMT
I was just going through and I believe we might face the following problem while implementing

We will need to check if there are multiple SCM tools since the ticket tool might be used
for multiple ones. And this might be difficult to implement since Allura does not have a one-to-one
relationship with the SCMTools and the Trackers.

For example: which has two trackers and two mercurial

Maybe we could provide some way for branches to be able to be deleted from the web interface.
For example github provides for it in repo/settings/branches
We could do the same under SCMtool/settings/branches in

This would reduce the number of stale branches that have already been merged into the codebase
and solve the problem you were mentioning. 

Also, we can have a way to change the branch by searching like the one in github.

and also to create branch there if there is proper write access:


** [tickets:#8116] Branches directly from Tickets.**

One of the basic and maintainable style followed by teams is to create branches related to
tickets, and limiting the creation of branches. I think this is a common trend and we should
make a feature which would add an option on tickets page to instantly create a new branch
from desired base. I believe this would help definitely to manage rogue branches even for
frequent committers. Also it helps to directly match what code changes are related to a particular

This would be completely optional and a team can switch it on only if they would want to limit
and manage branches.

Any suggestions are welcome.
