Subject RE: [DISCUSS][PROPOSAL] cleanup repo
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:48:56 GMT

I believe we are saying these branches will no longer have any future releases; that they
are technically EOM/EOL.

I think we can easily cleanup all branches that are 6+ months older.

+1 Agree. We have more than 200 branches.

As we are changing our review process I want to clean up the
repository at apache getting rid of stale branches. Of course the
release branches of old releases should stay, but a lot of old
branches have been merged at unknown places in the master or old
release branches. I want to propose to delete them as much as

- I want to delete any branch that has no commits newer then one

- I want to ask the last commiter on any branch with commits newer
then one year to review if 'their' branch can be removed
- All branches that are merged back are to remain untouched.

ideally only the branches 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 and master

remain as branches HEAD. This is unfortunately not true for some

releases that were never merged back into their respective release
branches. Any work in progress will of course not be touched.


   Nope, a good idea. We should remove old branches. I'd say that
   everything over 6 months is also old.
