Git

1. Introduction


Git is being used to implement an additional contribution process via a Distributed version control system for the Tiki community. The reasons, pros and cons are documented on Distributed revision control page.

Despite the benefits of using Git, there are many concerns about how each contributor will behave, work and what kind of problems they will find on their daily activities. So, this document and derived pages are an attempt to guess what knowledge a Tiki developer should have for contributing to Tiki.

3. Status as of 2018-06-12


There is a combined workflow using SVN and Git to make a more smooth transition and less impact on daily activities of Tiki developers. This workflow can be found on Git and SVN combined workflow page and it details how is the integration of SVN and Git now.

Also, the current phase of migration strategy involves writing enough documentation and close write access to SVN repository, making it read-only. Probably soon, we will have a Round Table Meeting to check if it is time to close SVN. Only once the following is done can we talk about closing write access to the SVN repo. Marc Laporte

  1. The Git workflow is compelling enough that the majority of developers want to move to it
  2. All those who would like some support / training have received it.
  3. The Git-related documentation is ready (we need something equivalent as what we have for SVN)
  4. The relevant automated scripts (such as the release scripts) have all been ported to use Git
  5. There is a strategy for usernames (how to request access, etc.)


See Using Git with Tiki and Git Tips to start developing with Git.

4. Roadmap

  1. Setup workflow to work with Git and SVN
  2. Write documentation
  3. Talk on Round Table Meeting about Git
  4. Setup help channel for developers struggling with Git
  5. Close SVN write access
  6. Publish the new Tiki repository

5. Discussions

Distributed revision control has discussions which led to Git being the best option.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
