Hi all

I am hoping for a little clarification around branching. Currently we are not using branching at all in our code. The tree is a straight line without the need for any branches.

So here comes the question. I started on a new section of code to rewrite a reporting module that wasn't functioning well. I now am halfway through this. However, management have come and said because of timescales, can I tweak the old reporting module and leave the new code for a later version. Now obviously I don't want to lose the current work I've done. What is the best way to accomplish this? Should I branch the code and have the new code running as a separate branch and tweak the old code on the trunk? Or should the changing of the old code be on the branch and have the new code on the trunk?

The other developers on the team would be working on the trunk which is why I'd prefer to have the new code on the branch. Which is the best way to handle this?

Kind Regards

Ray Booysen
