Branching Model

All current development goes into master branch.

Papermerge versions branch from master branch and are tagged for specific version. This is easier to explain with a picture.


Branching model used by Papermerge project.

  • Stable version branches are named stable/1.0.x, stable/1.1.x etc.
  • Git tagging is used to mark specific software version e.g. v1.0.0, v1.1.0, v1.2.0 and so on.

Git Branching/Tagging Blitz Introduction

To checkout a branch stable/1.1.x, use command:

$ git checkout stable/1.1.x

To checkout a tagged commit, say a commit tagged v1.1.0, you use same command as checking out a branch:

$ git checkout v1.1.0
