Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-6374) Rename branches in cordova-cli git repository
Date Mon, 10 Jun 2013 20:16:20 GMT
Braden Shepherdson created INFRA-6374:

             Summary: Rename branches in cordova-cli git repository
                 Key: INFRA-6374
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6374
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Git
            Reporter: Braden Shepherdson

Due to mistakes in the branching and merging of this repository, the history is a tangle and
merging two long-lived branches proved impossible without manually restoring some manually
reverted changes, among other damage.

We have successfully rebased the master branch to repair the damage, and then merged in the
other long-lived branch. This branch now exists as master2.

This naming, and the fact that HEAD still points at master, is a pain and we would much rather
rename the branches.

We request that on the cordova-cli repository, master be renamed to old_master, and master2
be renamed to master. HEAD should point at this new master.

The committers on the Cordova project are aware that this will require re-cloning of the repository,
and are prepared to take that step.
