Also, I have created a bug_fixes_only branch. (to maintain a 'stable' release)

There should be NO new features and NO database changes applied to this branch!!!


Do we need to create a webERP_Develop branch (actual name TBD), to cover any new features and/or DB changes? If so, I have not yet done this, so please do create one if this could be useful to avoid "breaking" master.

Moving from email to forum........

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your efforts on the release. Good work.

We had talked about keeping the stable code from the current release in the master branch. I now see this as unnecessary, as it is possible to download the stable code GH releases, and also browse the repo at any point in time (where there is a commit/tag).
I’d be happy to keep the master branch as the working branch, where we commit new features etc.

Thinking that the bug fix branch will be long-standing, could you shorten its name to bug_fixes_only, please?

I will add some details to the documentation ( or GH Wiki) about branch rules.

I echo the thanks to Paul for the hard work that has gone into this.

From experience of running the stable branch in the past I would suggest that one person (I would nominate Paul) has complete control over it, and only he cherry picks the patches to apply. Otherwise it tends to get chaotic. Also developers should make sure they don't commit new features and bug fixes in the same commit - this shouldn't happen but often does. Aso it would help the maintainer if developers marked bug fix commits that they wished included with a comment in the commit to that affect.
