[okfn-dev] How Github uses Github to develop Github

Dear all,

Forgive the silly subject header, I'm clearly feeling a bit too frivolous.

Anyway, I just read the following blog post by Scott Chacon about some of Github's internal development processes, and I thought some of the readership of this list might find it interesting:


In particular, the use of pull requests as places for *internal* discussion about feature branches is something that hadn't occurred to me, and which would be a helpful way to encourage inter-developer discussion while we're working in different places around the globe.

The second question which might be interesting to discuss at some point is the question of a virtually continuous deployment process. Are there any projects where we might benefit from such an arrangement?
