Subject Re: [VOTE] Simplify CloudMonkey's branching/maintenance process
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2014 00:50:15 GMT

CloudMonkey's git repo history is mostly linear and the work on master
is simply getting synced on 5.3 branch. I want to ask the community if
anyone has any objections on just keeping master as the working branch
and have branches when they are needed (say documentation, feature work
etc) and once they are merged they can be removed. We have git tags to
identify past release so is it also alright with everyone to remove the
support branches such as 5.3/5.2 etc.

This way we will have:
- one main working branch (master)
- branch based workflow: feature branches for doing feature work, pull
requests or reviewboard for bugfixes for non-committers
- master is aimed to remain stable
- master will have its own TravisCI and tests (in upcoming weeks)
- CloudMonkey aims for progressive/rolling releases that are backward
compatible with older releases and have clean upgrades

For this please vote with your comments/suggestions;

+1  approve
+0  no opinion
-1  disapprove (and reason why)
