Gitflow BangBang

- 02/05/2015 05:07:35

If you where attracted by the subject, you might be interested in a discussion with the final goal to figure out, how to implement gitflow within the odoo ecosystem and branch-naming standards. I know, decisions have been made during the move to github, so let's look if we might end up challenging them or not...

From a first sight, I think it is perfectly possible to implement the gitflow tool for odoo.
Note that it is possible to adapt its configuration:

As configuration changes depending on which branch we are, we need to pass "branched" configuration. How? 

The file .gitconfig comes in handy. An example:

What does this mean, we could make an incremental (small) change to the odoo-ecosystem branch design and have a HUGE impact on developer friendliness and elegantly bypassing tedious fundamentals in the contribution learning curve.

Any allies to push this forward?

Things to be done:
- carefully design .gitconfigs (which could do other good) per official odoo-branch
 -- side note: such as configuring upstream doesn't actually need a python script or such :)
- promote this link:
