The Upstream Pivot: Arbitrary Branching

To fully take advantage of modularity, we need to provide packages with different lifecycles, SLA, and EOLs. With the current branching workflow, we have one branch per Fedora release, which restricts a package to a single version in a Fedora release. By introducing the new workflow of “arbitrary branching”, this allows module packagers to use package/component branches that meet their needs in regards to version, SLA, and EOL. This talk will cover:
- Why we implemented “arbitrary branching” and how this affects Fedora
- What tooling changes took place and why we made those decisions
- How to get involved and take advantage of “arbitrary branching”, including a walkthrough of the current tools
