Question: How do I manage interns or other developers that I do not trust to perform check-ins?

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode


If your team includes developers that you do not yet trust, such as new hires or interns, you can deny these developers check-in permission on the source tree. Make sure that you set your desired permissions (including permissions for your own account) before turning off inheritance. Rather than check in directly, untrusted developers can make pending changes and then shelve these changes. A more experienced developer can then unshelve the changes, review them, and check them in later.
