Re: [trinity-devel] R14 hard freeze for RC1

I appreciate the discussion about branching. I prefer a different view: no branches. Just leave git as-is. Patches affecting post R14.0.0 are not pushed to git. If inadvertently pushed, those patches are reverted until post R14.0.0. Attach all post R14.0.0 patches to a respective bug report with a note not to push until post R14.0.0.

If uncertain during the freeze period, push privileges could be temporarily suspended or limited to two people.

The whole branching topic makes my head hurt. Based on the discussion I suspect my head is not the only that spins. Planes circle airports waiting to land because there is a limited number of usable runways. Use the same analogy for pushing patches. Where is the rush? Especially considering how long many Trinity patches tend to sit untouched in bug reports anyway.

Regarding the three unfinished bug reports, just finish them. Again, where is the rush?
