[EPIC] Improve VCS / code review for apps engineers
Closed, InvalidPublic


App engineers have curated the following list of VCS improvements:

  • Offers easily readable diffs.
    • Diff UI should be readable
    • Diffs should not be polluted with changes like rebase / merge cruft
  • Renders markdown nicely (e.g. README)
  • Allows flexibility in branching and commit methodology (related to above)
    • Support viewing discrete commits (i.e. doesn't require squashing)
    • Support squash methodology as well (This is preferred for Android)
  • Readable conversation view
  • Integrates well with GitHub
    • Able to merge pull requests in a way that allows them to be marked as “merged” and not “closed”
    • Ideally, one can work directly in GitHub and things “just work”
