wiki:Obsolete/GitBranches

Version 1 (modified by pulkomandy, 8 years ago) ( diff )

--

Since the switch to git, branches are not inside the main development tree anymore. This means a lot of work happens out of sight.

This page is a first attempt to :

  • Give some hints on how to work with these for those of us not knowing git well enough
  • Trying to give these branches a bit more visibility by giving the URL and a short description of the work going on and status.

Getting changes from a branch

Available branches

Axel IMAP rewrite

https://github.com/axeld/haiku/tree/imap

The current IMAP code in Haiku is quite buggy and apparently led to data loss in some cases. This branch is a work in progress rewrite of the whole IMAP code to bring it in better shape.

Package management

URL?

The package management in Haiku takes an approach that touches a lot of things in the OS, down to the bootloader. It is basically working now, but the main consequence for applications is that a lot of places are now made out of packages and are read-only. This gets some apps in trouble, so it wasn't merged yet in the development trunk.
