Subject The Git Branching Model: Will it work with SVN?
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2012 00:21:53 GMT
So, while the poll is leaning towards an unstable branch, there seems to be
a lot of interest in the Git Branching Model described here [1].

This seems like a more complex branching scheme than I was envisioning, but
it seems to be working for folks.  The question is: does anyone have any
concerns about how well it will work with SVN?  I'm thinking we won't switch
to Git until after Adobe donates 3.x at the earliest.  That's the last known
donation that will have SVN history.

In my understanding of the model, our trunk would be the "master" described
in the model and the "unstable" branch would be the "develop" branch in the
model.  I say that because the very top-most arrow indicates that "develop"
is a branch of "master".

I am thinking of running a new poll that includes this model, but I want to
make sure that there isn't going to be an obvious show-stopper with SVN if
it wins.

I also pondered the notion of a variant where SVN trunk is the "master" and
we use a Git branch as the "develop" branch.  I don't know much about Git so
I don't know if that would cause more problems or not, but it would allow us
to keep SVN around for the 3.x import.
