The repository holds two main branches with an infinite lifetime:
Branch origin/stable is considered the main branch where the source code of HEAD always reflects a production-ready state.
Branch origin/master is considered the main branch where the source code of HEAD always reflects a state with the latest delivered development changes for the next release.
When the source code in the master branch reaches a stable point and is ready to be released, all of the changes should be merged back into stable somehow and then tagged with a release number.
Other branches, some supporting branches are used to aid parallel development between team members, ease tracking of features, prepare for production releases and to assist in quickly fixing live production problems. Unlike the main branches, these branches always have a limited life time, since they will be removed eventually.
The different types of branches we may use are:
- Branch perNewFeature
- Branch releaseBranches
Both of them branch off from master and must merge back into master branch through a Pull Request in Github. Once the PR is approved and merged, the US branch may be deleted.
