Subject [VOTE] Git Guidelines (2)
Date Wed, 24 May 2017 17:11:27 GMT
Hi folks,

I am re-casting this vote for the previously discussed Git guidelines 
for all committers to make life easier for everyone. If the vote passes, 
every committer must abide to this.

The guidelines:
= Typical Issue Workflow =

  1. Branch off a release branch (e.g., 4.4.x, 5.0.x) ({{{git checkout 
-b <release branch>/<JIRA id> master}}}) where {{{<JIRA id>}}} being the

JIRA issue you have assigned to yourself, e.g., HTTPCORE-123 or 
HTTPCLIENT-689. Exmaple: {{{git checkout -b 4.4.x/HTTPCORE-123 4.4.x}}}.
  1. Work on your issue and create as many commits as you want/need
  1. Polish it, squash it or fix it up into a single commit
  1. Ask for a review if you are uncertain
  1. Take care of a proper commit message (good reads: 
[[https://chris.beams.io/posts/git-commit/|1]] and 
Put the title of the JIRA issue, e.g., [HTTPCORE-123] Memory leak in 
response, in the first line, followed by an explanation why you did take 
this approach. The ticket desc contains the issue, your commit message 
contains the solution. If in doubt, ask for help and give people a 
couple of days to react.
  1. Request the release manager to merge your banch back to the release 
branch and make sure that this merge won't incur a merge commit
  1. When you close the issue, put a link to your commit to create a 
direct relation between issue and solution.

=  Side Notes =

  1. Never rewrite (rebase) history on master or any other long-lived 
branch because you will break others. Only the release manager is 
entitled to clean up history upto 72 hours after a commit if it is 
absolutely necessary
  1. If a change comes for a PR on GitHub:
    * Apply the same above rules
    * Don't steal authorship
    * Let the reporter polish his work
    * Amend the message at the end with "This closes/fixes #xy" and push.
