 Q3. How do you manage source code in repository if you have multiple releases lined up and different teams are working on it? Tools2016-06-23 09:03:52

Ans. We creates separate branches for each project if development work is going on parallel and they are to be released at different times. Once the first release is done, we merge the branch changes into trunk. If they all have to go at one time, we usually would merge everything in the trunk itself.

 Q4. Is it advisable to just hold checking in your changes to trunk if there is another release planned in between ?2016-06-23 09:06:28

Ans. If it's just smaller change, and single person is working, then this approach is fine. Otherwise there are risk on loosing it on your machine. Moreover , If there are multiple people working , it makes it hard to share code. It's better to create a separate branch and then merge it later to trunk.

 Q7. How do you branch your code within SCM ?SCM2018-07-25 11:05:34

Ans. We keep a Working Branch , Release Branch and Master.

Working Branch is what we work on. We release from the release branch.

So the flow for merge is

Work Branch -> Release Branch -> Master

 Q8. Do you think it's a good practice to perform releases from a branch and then merge code to the master ?SCM2018-07-25 11:06:16

Ans. We have followed this practice in one of the project. The only downside we felt was the need to merge the new snapshot version to master after the release.

The Benefit is that it's easy to just ignore the branch if complete rollback happens and hence master remains in sync with production.
