We use git in all our project products, packages, modules and themes.

Branching Strategy

We use GitFlow as a default strategy for git branch management.

What is GitFlow?

Gitflow is a branching model, a particularly useful framework for streamlining collaboration and scaling teams.

It contains following branches:

Master or MainThis contains your production code.
DevelopThis is the most active branch in which all branches are merged. This contains the most updated code.
FeatureThese are the branches created by developers to develop features. These branches are merged by Merge Request or Pull Request to develop branch.
ReleaseThese are the branches created from the develop branch to eventually merge in master & develop.
HotfixThese are the branches created from the master branch to eventually merge in master & develop.
