Status

While Menu Wrench is being used in production, on a limited basis, it's status is still considered beta as backwards incompatible changes may take place.

Stable Master Branch Policy

The master branch will, at all times, remain stable. Development for new features will occur in branches, and when ready, will be merged into the master branch.

In the event features have already been merged for the next release series, and an issue arises that warrants a fix on the current release series, the developer will create a branch based off the tag created from the previous release, make the necessary changes, package a new release, and tag the new release. If necessary, the commits made in the temporary branch will be merged into master.

Branch Schema

Shocking as it may seem, my goal is to also support Joomla 1.5. Therefore, the following branch schema will be followed:

  • master: stable at all times, containing the latest tagged release for Joomla 2.5+.
  • develop: the latest version in development for Joomla 2.5+. This is the branch to base all pull requests for Joomla 2.5+ on.
  • 1.5-master: stable at all times, containing the latest tagged release for Joomla 1.5.
  • 1.5-develop: the latest version in development for Joomla 1.5. This is the branch to base all pull requests for Joomla 1.5 on.

Contributing

Your contributions are more than welcome! Please make all pull requests against the appropriate develop branch for Joomla version 2.5+ and 1.5-develop for Joomla version 1.5.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
