Multi-Trunk

May 30, 2014 at 1:50 PM
Are you planning providing guidance for multi-trunk development. Where each product is build within it's own "Main" and dependencies are shared via NuGet. MS Research did a great analysis here: http://research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/default.aspx?id=157290

We are currently thinking about a "Main" branch for each module and the framework and a "Product Main" that is nothing more than a composition of the NuGet packages from various sources pulled together and verified. This is still in the idea phase and a long way from implementation so I cannot share my experiences, but it's where we are looking.

Even if people don't take it as far as we are thinking, I think that looking at multi-trunk would be beneficial for teams.

Thanks,

This approach is of interest to us as well.
