Development of major new features for Django tends to take place in branches — copies of the main codebase focused on a particular feature. Using branches makes it easier to experiment with such sweeping changes without possibly breaking the trunk — the main line of development.
Branches may not be stable, but they offer a chance to test out bleeding-edge code before it hits the mainline. Give them a try, and remember to send feedback to the branch maintainers!
- Current there are six active branches, one for each student working as a part of the Google summer of code, they are located at: http://code.djangoproject.com/browser/django/branches/soc2009/
Creating New Branches
Please see http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/internals/contributing/#branch-policy for information about creating new feature branches.
If you have a branch of Django maintained with a DVCS tool, please add it below.
You can fetch it with:
bzr branch lp:django
There are several git repositories out there, some of which are used to develop patches that will come to SVN.
- The official git mirror is maintained by Jannis Leidel, updated every five minutes and hosted on GitHub: http://github.com/django/django/ * Matthias Kestenholz has set up several git repositories for Django and for a selection of Django applications:
- Gitweb with complete list of repositories: http://spinlock.ch/pub/git/ (broken as for 2009-03-11, http protocol works fine as of 2009-03-18, git protocol is stil broken)
- The django changes are sporadically published on repo.or.cz: http://repo.or.cz/w/django.git/ (as for 2009-03-11, last update is 5 months old)
- Other people also published their repositories, in case you want to add them as remotes:
- Official mirror: It's hosted on Bitbucket, it is updated every five minutes: http://bitbucket.org/django/django
- See MercurialBranches for how to use hg with Django
