|Re: [mdt-ocl.dev] bug and archive branches
HiI don't understand your proposal. It takes me about 1 minute per bug to check with Bugzilla whether it's really active. This becomes unscalable once there are 100 bug branches. With the renaming, I know that I lose no significant history by deleting the archive branches, and there are only a modest 10, hopefully decreasing to 5, active bug branches to check for deletion when I want further pruning.

Just to be clear: I don't mind getting the bug/* branches when fetching. I regard them useful information when it comes to understanding the topology of bug fixes and the creation of attachments for bugs. I find the duplication that happens due to renaming them to "archive/*" somewhat annoying. If the only reason for the rename is telling whether a bug branch is still open, couldn't we instead refer to Bugzilla and the merge topology in git to get the same information?-- Axel On 08/16/2011 10:37 PM, Ed Willink wrote: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 https://github.com/eclipse/ocl/network. The "int" branch is 'active' and will go before long.

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.
