Important branch changes on the OpenFL GIT repository


Hi again,

I’m announcing some import changes to how we’re managing the OpenFL GIT repository.

The master branch is now the default branch when creating a clone. This is like the previous develop branch.

What’s happening to the develop branch? We’re broadening the number of contributors with direct commit rights to the project! We’re going to use develop as the staging ground to integrate more fixes to OpenFL, then they’ll make their way to master as they’re tested. This is somewhat like the pull request architecture (and pulls will still exist), but should remove some of the bottlenecks and friction for developers who have a good track record, and maybe makes it simpler to promote these developers to admins in the future.

If you want a clone of the last release, other than using tags, we have a new release branch that you can use.
