Re: Proposal for new workflow, incorporating "Optimistic Merging"by
Numérigraphe, Lionel Sausin
Hi, Thanks for this proposal. You propose a beta branch to work around our lack of dedicated teams to actively fix errors but : - it's not optimistic, we still wait for gatekeepers to merge - cherry-picking from beta is hell, branches and PRs are the right tool for that for. Instead, I would suggest optimistic merging into the main branch, and automatic tagging of the latest "green" commit (travis, coveralls, runbot all passing). This way those who want a production-ready branch can pull the "green" tag instead of the HEAD. Maybe we could complement this with a PSC-driven release process, where each team would make deeper tests every so often and tag the branch "STABLE".
