Now that the core UDST libraries have up-to-date releases out on PyPI and Conda, I'd like to hear any opinions you all have about two things:
The current model we're using is:
- Successful PRs get merged directly to master
- Master branch is most up-to-date code and diverges from versions on PyPI/Conda
- Master branch occasionally tagged to a release and uploaded to package managers
We've considered trying gitflow, which is a little more involved but has the advantage of keeping the master branch in line with the latest release. The main difference for contributors would be that PRs get merged to a
dev branch instead of
master. Any preferences here? Would this be overkill?
There was a huge lag in issuing the latest releases - I think they included changes dating back to 2015. We'd like to get on a more frequent schedule, and our intent is to continue issuing releases whenever there seems to be a critical mass of new features. Are there any preferences for a different model? We could potentially cut new releases on a schedule (e.g. quarterly). I'm guessing most folks on this forum are cloning from GitHub directly, so maybe don't have strong opinions about this, but I thought we'd check.
