Subject Re: Discussion on GPU backend
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 16:20:00 GMT
In my opinion, the problem with using a separate branch with longer-term work, rather than
smaller PRs into the master, is that after several commits, say 10 or 20, it becomes much
more difficult to rebase without running into nasty merge conflicts, especially when those
conflicts are on an intermediate commit so one would have to remember what the code looked
like at that point in time to properly fix the conflicts. To me, this invites issues such
as duplicated code and slower progress.
