[Ironruby-core] Mapping multiple pushes to a single review

I'm currently trying the branch technique to see if I can rebase back to master and delete the topic branch at the same time.

I will report back midweek when I pull my stuff into IronRuby's repo.

I t would be interesting to see how others do it.

Could you have avoided doing pulls from the main repo? Not ideal but given the tools we have, we will have to figure out a solution that balances all interests.

You could have a separate branch for active work if you do need pulls for main for some other reason like doing code reviews for others, just keeping on top of whats going on, etc.

Also, if you can manage to avoid pulls from the main repo, should rebasing be recommended? You want to do frequent pushes maily to back up your changes in the cloud, and so rebasing sounds like a good option once you are finally happy with the changes and want to push it into your master branch. It will be easier to browse file histories…

Also, I suppose this issue is not unique to IronRuby. How do other projects deal with code reviews, keeping file history less noisy, etc?

This is one of the weak areas for our Git setup. I have multiple commits that need review. I honestly feel that Git needs the concept of a push object, so I could say look at this, or these pushes. So, options to help you review:

·         Click on each of these links and leave comments

·         Use git however you want

·         Use Git Extensions (if you clone git://github.com/jredville/ironruby.git, and setup Git Extensions, you should be able to click on each commit, and each file at your leisure)

·         GitDiff 17de3f82 8a54299 (Unfortuneately, this will include commits and files from IronRuby’s main repo’s pushes)

We’re trying to figure something better out, including possibly using Review Board (http://review-board.org). So, now for the actual review:

This a some work on Generic Method specs, as well as more general work on a first pass of the test plan (http://ironruby.net/.NET_Testing_plans).

·         modify .gitignore to ignore Bin in addition to bin<http://github.com/jredville/ironruby/commit/f1ae28a5810c2c985984509a8cd75426170febd2>
