Well, you won’t need a spoon to develop in the HR Open Github environment. Forking and branching are two methods for deviating from the Main (approved and deployed) code. A branch is part of the original repository, whereas a fork is a copy of the original repository. HR Open recommends our workgroups use branches.
Did you know that the term WikiWiki is Hawaiian for “fast; quick.” At HR Open, we use Wiki for collaborative editing of our documentation. HR Open is a global community of volunteers, dispersed throughout numerous time zones, so we can’t always communicate through conference calls.
Github is a great developer and collaboration tool, especially for HR Open’s distributed standards development projects. Although HR Open uses Github as intended, we wanted to share some notes on our usage guidelines within the workgroups.
