Subject [ALL] How to handle GitHub pull requests
Date Fri, 17 Oct 2014 07:44:39 GMT
Hi everyone,

Some of our contributors like to use GitHub pull requests (PRs) as a
means of providing patches. Until now, I've tended to access the
.patch version of these pull requests and apply them in SVN.

Is there a preferred approach to take here? I have a GitHub account,
so presumably I could be given rights to the repositories I commit to
(lang) and this would allow me to merge PRs directly into trunk. Would
such changes be reflected in our SVN code-base too? Is there any
advantage to one approach over the other?

Apologies if this has already been discussed at length before - I
searched the mail archives but didn't come up with anything other than
passing references to our GitHub repositories.

Kind regards,
