Persistable Data Objects - Source Control Structure

Jan 10, 2010 at 5:12 AM

The Persistable Data Objects for WPF project uses Codeplex’s Subversion interface to its repository and follows the standard pattern of /trunk, /branches, and /tags folders.

Quick tips for understanding the PDO repository
  • Most (if not all) of the development will be done on the main trunk.
  • Releases are for anything placed on the downloads sites will have a corresponding tags placed in the /tags folder.
  • Branches are used for significant changes to the code base that need long development periods to fully bake.
  • Branches are also used for trying out potential solutions, new approaches, or new developers, without tying up the main trunk for everyone else
