[FFmpeg-devel] Using tags and branches.
Mon Dec 27 22:26:29 CET 2010
git describe works on tags.
people should branch from mainline every time needs to experiment or to
keep a release going and hopefully sync/merge to mainline
I'd like to have a layout so:
- we tag the mainline commit from which a release is branched
- we tag the mainline every time we break the ABI/API
It helps to get either how far we are from a tagged release or from the
latest incompatible change using git describe and to see quite easily
which was the latest compatible version with a certain api.
