re: why branching on git is wrong VIEW POST


Any agile methodologies will tell you to keep the features small and talk to your teammates regularly. Also, any good backlog grooming should contains evaluation of inter-dependance between features so special care is taken in those scenarios.

So I definitely agree with you that long lived branches are a nasty thing. However, I don't see were this has anything to do with git branching, gitflow or feature switches. Also feature branches allow to validate the team's "definition of done" in code review before integrating a features, so the team never have to put any feature in production that would lack test coverage, documentation or whatever the team deems important.

I suggest you to take a look at the INVEST mnemonic trick, to evaluate your backlog stories.

See ya!
