Get Started

Visit to set up your environment.

Create Branch

Checkout the branch that you will eventually merge your feature into:

git checkout master

Type gitc + your ticket URL to create a new branch:


Pull Changes from Upstream

When you're developing, you may need to pull new changes from the upstream branch that you will eventually merge your feature into:

gitc pull

Discuss Code

After pushing one or two commits, put the code up for discussion:

gitc discuss

Mark as Ready

When the branch is ready for merging, mark it as ready:

gitc ready

This will mark the pull request as "Pending Review".

Code Review

Managers will periodically check for "Pending Review" issues on GitHub.

Once reviewed, they will mark the issue as reviewed:

gitc reviewed 0000

Where 0000 is the Github issue number.

Quality Assurance

QA engineers will periodically check for "Pending QA" issues on Github.

To create a new QA branch:

gitc qa 0000 0001

This will create a new QA branch containing the commits from the related Github issue numbers.

This branch can be deployed to a staging environment for QA.

QA Fail

If a feature does not pass QA:

gitc qa fail 0000

Where 0000 is the Github issue number.

To fail all issues:

gitc qa fail

This will add a "fail" label to the issue.

QA Pass

If a feature passes QA:

gitc qa pass 0000

Where 0000 is the Github issue number.

To pass all issues:

gitc qa pass

This will add a "pass" label to the issue and will complete the pull request by merging the feature branch into the target branch.


  • Make ticket active when starting branch
  • Label issues with ticket milestone?
  • Check for conflict whenever merge happens
  • Instead of detecting CONFLICT, use error status $? != 0
  • Add comment on lighthouse with issue URL
  • Need to make sure when a branch is created, it is always from the pristine remote version, not local
  • Add conflict check when calling "qa pass [ticket]"
  • Need to change Github.parseLabels so we can have a "Fail" label along side a "Pending" tag, but for all other cases there should only be one of these tags present: "Pending QA", "Pending Review", "Pass"
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
