Subject [Summary] checkin process
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2014 04:22:21 GMT
For the git flow:
1. We agreed to follow git-flow explained here
2. This is the proposal for first cut
2a. rename 'master' to 'develop’
2b. branch a new 'master' from ‘4.4’ and update tags with release/4.4.0
2c. branch ‘release/4.5' from the develop
2d. merge ‘release/4.5' to master once the release voting is done.
3. This would be the flow for a hot fix
3a. branch off from the release tag on master. in this case it would be release/4.4.0
3b. commit the fixes in hotfix/4.4.1
3c. do the release
3d. merge to develop
3e. merge to master and update tags
3f. delete hot fix branch
4. for any LTS release create a support branch when required using git-flow support

using the git-flow git extension available at can reduce the
number of commands/errors

In addition:
1. Every commit should have unit tests
2. every feature/merge request should have unit and marvin integration tests
3. A commit should not have check style or find bugs issues
4. any coverity issues reported in the new code should be addressed immediately
5. every developer should run the BVT on the simulator before doing a checkin (<,+using+Simulator>)
 (This I am not very sure. May be we should let jenkins handle it and report integration failures
if any?)
Please add/amend if I missed anything.

Can we call for a vote on this and freeze this without further delay?
