Subject Re: [Summary] checkin process

ahh… we have the same content twice on the wiki. I deleted the duplicate and edited it as
per the comment from daan.

+1 for starting a vote thread

Please use this section on the wiki to propose/fix/modify the new proposed check-in process:

My feedback:

- I don’t want to enforce/adopt the gitflow model "as-is", like not rename master branch

- the aim IMO is to make master stable for people to work with, so we don’t break it often
- we do feature/bug-fix/any-work in our own branch and merge/cherry-pick/what-have-you when
it has tests and it is stable (lazy definition as per committer’s discretion)

- the git commit cherry-picking/merging should be from firm/stable branches to unstable i.e.
from release branches (such as 4.x) to master or developer’s own branch; the reverse is
done only when the work/commits/check-ins are tested/firm/stable

We’ve so many threads with so many emails that we’re sort of causing split-brain issue
for ourselves on this issue.

I’m not sure which one to follow now -- the length of a discussion thread is inversely proportional
to the interest of community members on the thread.

Let’s start a new vote thread and drop discussion on other threads?

to start using git-flow from 4.5+, we need to have the latest stable version which can be
master and I assumed that would be 4.4
point 2. should be modified assuming no previous releases
2a. branch ‘develop’ from 'master’
2b. branch ‘release/4.5' from the develop
2c. merge ‘release/4.5' to master once the release voting is done.

Are we waiting for Leo to put up a proposal?

Anyone really :)

Someone mentioned:

You could add a section on 'gitflow' and basically dump your bullet list.

Then we can edit it and call a vote .

I answerred this from my phone but it did't get through so here my
comment again:

We can't cut a new master from 4.4 without enormous work. I spend two
days on getting 4.4 in line with 4.4-forward and as Leo has shown the
work for getting all features from master into master will be much
greater. So the proposal should be that we maintain 4.4 as traditional
and start this work flow from 4.5+

As for the additions you gave; these are reviewer guidelines for my
part not requirements to a work flow.

In general I am +1 on putting this to vote.

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?
