Subject How to maintain a release branch?
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2016 10:45:25 GMT

I would be grateful for some advice on how to maintain a release branch.

Suppose we create a release branch, finalise the work and make the release.  We then maintain
fixes for that release on that branch.

Q1. As we apply fixes to the release branch, should we also manually apply those fixes to
the trunk (where main development is proceeding)?

Q2. Does there come a point when one should merger the release branch back into the trunk
(or does Q1 imply that this is unnecessary because we have manually duplicated the changes
in the trunk)?

Q3. If we should merge the release branch back into the trunk, do we merge from trunk to release
branch first (I guess not because that would pollute the branch)?

Best regards
