Re: [] bug and archive branches

Hi Axel

It's not perfect.

I have decluttered most of my bug branches by moving them to archive branches, so wherever you see any archive branch you may delete the corresponding remote tracking branch so that it stays gone. You may also delete all the remote tracking archive branches so that the EGIT history cleans up. Unfortunately the archive branches are still upstream so they keep coming back. Maybe a clever fetch config would not fetch them.

Some of the archive branches can probably be deleted. I doubt any of them will be useful after 3 months of archive.

I encourage you and Adolfo to endeavour to close out bug/branches so that they can be archived.

The "zzbenchmark" branch was an accident.

The "benchmark" branch is now on my Github forked OCL repository; it needs a CQ. See

The "int" branch is 'active' and will go before long.

question regarding the archiving policy for bug branches: with regularly fetching the git, I end up with branch duplicates for the bug/archive branch tags. A fetch doesn't delete local branch tags when they once made it into a cloned repository. I would have to manually delete the bug/* branches after they got renamed in the central git into archive/*. I don't think this is practical. Would you share this observation? If so, we may re-consider the policy for bug branches.
