- Code development will be peformed in a forked copy of the repo. Commits will not be made directly to the repo. Developers will submit a pull request that is then merged by another team member, if another team member is available.
- Each pull request should contain only related modifications to a feature or bug fix.
- Sensitive information (secret keys, usernames etc) and configuration data (e.g database host port) should not be checked in to the repo.
- A practice of rebasing with the main repo should be used rather that merge commmits.
