How to Handle Promotion Groups

Postby pvcshater » Thu Mar 20, 2008 6:01 pm

I'm moving a pvcs repository to subversion. We use promotion groups to keep track of what files belong in each environment: dev/qa/uat/prod etc. Since subversion doesn't have a concept of promotion groups, what is the equivalent? Branches? Thanks

We're looking to handle it by Tags. Each time there's a build for an environment (dev, qa, uat, prod, whatever) the trunk is tagged. The tags could be named & organized in many ways.

For example:

Code: Select all

/tags
   /qa
       /2008-03-05
       /2008-03-10
   /uat
       /2008-03-13
   /prod
       /2008-03-25


You could also incorporate bug-ids & feature names somehow. But, this would give you access to the state of a particular environment at build-points, which is probably the biggest function of the promotion groups.
