Subject Rules of thumbs for committers
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2012 19:57:39 GMT
Since we've added a bunch of committers AND switched version control
systems recently, it's worth a reminder:

- Merge from older branches to newer (i.e., merge 1.0 into 1.1 and 1.1
into trunk)
- If you commit to (and push) a newer branch first, then discover you
need the change in an older branch as well, use cherry-pick
- Turn on rebase for public branches ("git config branch.$name.rebase
true" for name in cassandra-0.8 through trunk)
