Subject: [dpdk-dev] development/integration branch?
Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 10:22:56 +0200
Message-ID: <544617E0.80502@bisdn.de> (raw)

Good morning,

Some DPDK users, including myself, use a clone of the git repository to 
compile DPDK for their applications, instead of downloading the tarball 
of each release.

In my opinion, it would be useful for such users that the master branch 
contains only stable releases, to prevent (mistakenly) to use a wip DPDK 
version, and jump quickly to the latest stable with a simple git pull 
without having to check the tags. Also new users would clone the repo 
and get only the stable release.

So I would propose to use an integration/development branch, where the 
patches are integrated and only push to master once a stable release is 
tagged in this integration branch.

Thoughts?

best
marc
