Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Git_At_Apache_Guide" by MarkStruberg
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2011 14:44:26 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "Git_At_Apache_Guide" page has been changed by MarkStruberg:

  Be aware that the branch created by a release with GIT always covers the whole repository.
+ ==== Release Tags with GIT ====
+ [Proposal, not yet coordinated]: Since a Tag in GIT is just a name for an existing sha1
commit, we can treat release tags much more elegant than with SVN where this is technically
a 'svn copy'.
+ While doing the release candidate we give it a {projectName}-{versionNr}-rcX tag. After
all the voting passes we can now easily apply the final tag name  {projectName}-{versionNr}
to this commit since tags are just a 'name' for a given sha1 commit, and the sha1 does not
change at all when tagging. If a vote fails, we can just assign a new '-rc2', etc tag.
