Again, changes aren't going through git yet, right? Not until SVN is decommissioned late this year (or early next). SVN requires a strict linear history so it handles the enforcement for now. My personal opinion is that when SVN is decomissioned we should use pull requests, simply because that's what's familiar to the very large development community outside LLVM. It will lower the bar to entry for new contributors. This has all sorts of implications we need to discuss of course, but we have some time to do that. If we don't use PRs, then we're pretty much on the honor system to disallow merges AFAIK. -David _______________________________________________ lldb-dev mailing list email@example.com https://lists.llvm.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/lldb-dev
