Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.6 (Windows/20050716)
I'm using cvs this way :
- I'm doing a branch for each important version and every time a new
important version is starting, I start a new branch.
Is it a correct way to use the branch system ?
Or the correct way to use is to start branches from the HEAD ?
There really is no "correct" way. Some approaches are better than
others, when specific results are required.
One important factor that will affect your decision is whether or not
versions will be intermixed. I.e. will you be working on versions 1.3,
1.4 and 1.5 at the same time? If so, then you will need to post more
detailed information about your release strategy.
On the other hand, if version X.Y does not begin until version X.(Y-1)
is (mostly) complete, then your release and version management strategy
is much easier: keep all new version development on the trunk. When you
are ready to begin working on version X.Y, create a branch and move
development of X.(Y-1) onto that branch.
In this case, how can I make a branch become the HEAD ? I could merge
the branch to the HEAD but I don't want to keep HEAD version.
How can V3 "replace" head ?
