This is a guide for buildtest maintainers
Incoming Pull Request
These are just a few points to consider when dealing with incoming pull requests
Any incoming Pull Request should be assigned to one or more maintainers for review.
Upon approval, the PR should be Create a merge commit or Squash and merge depending on your preference. To preserve commit history please use Create a merge commit though sometimes it can be useful to do Squash commit. For more details on merge request see https://docs.github.com/en/github/collaborating-with-pull-requests/incorporating-changes-from-a-pull-request/merging-a-pull-request
Maintainers can request user to put meaningful commit if author has not provided a meaningful message (i.e
git commit --amend)
Maintainers are requested that committer name and email is from a valid Github account. If not please request the committer to fix the author name and email.
All incoming PRs should be pushed to devel branch, if you see any PR sent to any other branch please inform code owner to fix it
Every buildtest release will be tagged with a version number using format X.Y.Z. Every release will have a tag that corresponds
to a release such as
v1.2.3. Git tags should be pushed to upstream by release manager only.
The process for pushing git tags can be described in the following article: Git Basics - Tagging
We will create annotated tags as follows:
git tag -a v1.2.3 -m "buildtest version 1.2.3"
Once tag is created you can view the tag details by running either:
git show v1.2.3
We have created the tag locally, next we must push the tag to the upstream repo by doing the following:
git push origin v.1.2.3
Every release must have a release note that is maintained in file CHANGELOG.rst
Under buildtest releases a new release can be created that corresponds to the git tag. In the release summary, just direct with a message stating refer to CHANGELOG.rst for more details
Once the release is published, make sure to open a pull request from
master and Rebase and Merge
to master branch. If there are conflicts during merge for any reason, then simply remove
master and create a master
branch from devel.
All maintainers are encouraged to view branch settings
master. The master and devel branches should be protected branches and devel branch should
be set as the default branch. Shown below is the expected configuration.
If something is not correct please consult with the maintainers.
We have enabled all commit types i.e (merge commits, squash merging, rebase merging) for merging Pull Request. Shown below is the recommended configuration, if you see a deviation please inform the maintainers.
If you notice a deviation, please consult with the maintainers.
