[open-measured-data-wg] WG: [incubation] Closing/deleting feature branches in git

Hey .*,

This discussion on the incubator mailing list might be also interesting for us. It basically states that, if you create branches you should name them in the scheme "$username/$topic". Then you can delete them by yourself and do not need Eclipse Admins for that. 

We should keep that in mind, if we setup a git workflow.

Kind Regards,


Christian

I'm project lead but I'm not on github but on the Eclipse Foundation's git server.
