How the Zerocat Label uses Git

Roles and Responsibilities

Workflow: Contributing via branching


git branch my-new-branch ; git checkout my-new-branch
git add new-file-in-branch
git commit
git push origin my-new-branch  # Announce this via email
git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/my-new-branch my-new-branch
git push origin --delete my-new-branch  # We are done with the branch, delete on server


git pull origin             # Now new remote branches are visible
git checkout my-new-branch  # Sets up tracking branch (git branch -vv)
git branch --delete my-new-branch  # We are done with the branch, delete locally

Project Maintainer:

git checkout master ; git merge my-new-branch
