Hi, I am completely new to branching and am trying to figure out how to apply the basic branch plan to an existing solution. We have one solution file containing 11 projects, a mixture of web application, shared class libraries, web services, database
The structure is as follows:
The main project I would like to add branching to (at least to start with) is the web project and i want to know exactly how to structure things, and where to create the branch.
Should I branch at the WebProject folder level, which also contains the project file? Do I then need to add this new branch to the solution? Wouldn't this give a naming conflict?
Should I create a sub-folder for 'Main' and move all of my existing code in to this and then branch from there in to other sub folders? How would this affect my folder structure when I deploy the web project (I don't want a 'Main'/'Release'
folder created when I deploy to my production web server.
Sorry if this is really basic, but it hasn't quite 'clicked' with me how I should get this started.
Thanks in advance,
