Getting the source code
Clone the rchain/Rholang and rchain/Rosette repos, then check out the working branch.
git clone https://github.com/rchain/Rholang.git git clone https://github.com/rchain/Rosette.git cd Rholang git checkout installJars cd ../Rosette git checkout dev
There is a master branch - current release.
Dev Branch - next release.
Every developer makes personal branches from dev. Create a pull request to merge with Dev. Choose a reviewer that will approve it using their reviewer tools. If you are a reviewer, it is your responsibility to thoroughly read all the code.
Once approved, the developer will perform the merge into Dev.
When it is time to merge to master, Greg would like to be involved. In future, we will schedule this discussion as part of a release cycle.
TBD: Need to figure out cutting releases. Medha to create a graph describing the branching and release cycles.
