git Releases

fabdeplois allows you to use git for your releases while not pushing all your history to your customers server. It uses gitpython to manage release commits in a distinct branch which gets pushed to the server.

Your history may then look like:

*    Commit after release (commit lives in "master")
*    Release commit gets merged back to "master"
| *  The actual release commit (living in "release/master")
| |
* |  Normal commit, it's tree is used for release commit above ("master")
| |
* |  Another normal commit ("master")
| |
* |  Another commit, that merges release back ("master")
| *  Another release commit ("release/master")
| |
* |  Another normal commit, tree used for release above ("master")
| |
| |  ...I think you should see the pattern now ;--)

As you may see release commits never have any parents except the previous release. This way your history will never be pushed to your customers server, as long as you only push the release branch. If you look at the release branch ("release/master") the history looks like:

*  The actual release commit (living in "release/master")
*  Another release commit ("release/master")
