Version Control Tips

Keep in mind the following best practices when using Version Control:

  • Commit changes to Version Control early and often
  • Make useful commit messages, which can be referenced against the changes made in the commit
  • Have commits reviewed by a peer prior to committing them to the master branch
  • Sync other updates regularly from the master branch
  • Make regular backups
  • Follow a peer review process (see below)

Peer Review Process

Peer Review is an important process that should be performed regularly during the development of new Test Cases.

  1. Review the check-in comments added to Version Control, which should detail the changes made
  2. Pull the changes to be reviewed from the branch to the local repository
  3. Launch the Project in Provar and perform the peer review
  4. Once verified, push the changes to the master branch
