Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache NetBeans Incubator Proposal
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2016 06:51:21 GMT
That goes into a direction I was about to ask anyway, the development model:

Is it CTR (commit-then-review) or RTC (review-then-commit). 

Means do committers directly push to the cannonical repo master branch and before doing a
release there is a manual stabilisation phase? Or do you only apply finished features?

Question is whether we need Gerrit or something similar. Or is plain GIT enough?

LieGrue,
strub
