Notes on Ceph repositories

Special branches

  • master: current tip (integration branch)

  • Release branches (for example luminous) corresponding to the releases listed at Release Index


The source repos are all on github.

  • Any branch pushed to ceph-ci.git will kick off builds that will generate packages and repositories on Try not to generate unnecessary load. For private, unreviewed work, only push to branches named wip-*. This avoids colliding with any special branches.

  • Nothing should reach a special branch unless it has been reviewed.

  • Preferred means of review is via github pull requests to capture any review discussion.

  • For multi-patch series, the pull request can be merged via github, and a Reviewed-by: … line added to the merge commit.

  • For single- (or few-) patch merges, it is preferable to add the Reviewed-by: directly to the commit so that it is also visible when the patch is cherry-picked for backports.

  • All backports should use git cherry-pick -x to capture which commit they are cherry-picking from.
