Subject Re: The Great Merge
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2016 00:21:30 GMT
I've gone ahead and tried merging my topic branch with this change, and it
turned out surprisingly well. I really didn't have many issues. I'll
summarize the process:

1) Merge the change from asterixdb with your topic branch checked out, so
just 'git merge hyracks-merge2'.
The only real conflict should be the pom, if you altered that. I found it
easiest to just replicate my changes and take the upstream, rather than
trying anything funny, since usually pom changes are not major.

2) Add your hyracks folder as a remote (for me, 'git remote add
hyracks-local file:///home/...')

3) Merge your hyracks topic branch into asterixdb ( ' git merge
This also worked pretty well, the only extra hiccup besides the pom was
files I had created. Those appeared at the top level again after the merge.
But, all you have to do is move them back down one folder into

That's about it really. I went ahead and pushed this up to github as well
so if anyone would like to take a look at the process or check out the
branch to see what happened (at least for me), the branch is here:
