Hello Tim, hello Gaby,

I am a bit confused now, Why do we have the silver branch if all goes immediately to Tim's private gold branch? Shouldn't we have the policy that a patch is sent to silver then it needs someone to approve and then Tim could easily extract it from the silver branch (even together with the svn log and/or ChangeLog).

For this simple modification of the TWO files
  Makefile.pamphlet and
it is perhaps not a big modification so that I could commit it directly to the trunk. But, Gaby, what is the general rule (for someone who has write access to Silver)?

Would that be as follows?

  1) open up a new branch
  2) make modifications (fix bugs or whatever)
  3) announce the bugfix to the list
  4) wait for approval of some other axiom-developer
  5) someone (who?) merges the changes back to the trunk
  6) Tim could extract modifications to his private Gold-branch

Would that be a reasonable policy? In fact, I would be happy if I could find such a policy somewhere on the wiki. In particular, I would like just to do one single 'diff -Naur', but that seems to force me to have an extra unmodified branch on my harddisk.

I am not for any SCM war I am just eager to learn about maintaining big projects. In particular for Axiom, submitting patches that apply to several files should be made simpler. It should be allowed to simply commit to a branch at Axiom silver.

In case it is approved by Tim, please apply it to silver branch, with
entry the appropriate ChangeLog.
