How to Retire an Old Release

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

When a Release branch in your Releases folder is old enough that you no longer have to support it, create a Safe Keeping folder in which to store the old release. The following is an example of what your branch structure might look like after you have created a Safe Keeping folder:
  • Main – Integration Branch
    • Source
    • Other Asset Folders
  • Releases – Container for release branches
    • Release 2 – Maintenance Branch
      • Source
      • Other Asset Folders
  • Safe Keeping - Container for safe keeping branches
    • Release 1 - Safe keeping branch
      • Source
      • Other Asset Folders

The goal of moving the branch from the Releases folder to the Safe Keeping folder is to reduce clutter in the Releases folder without having to delete old releases. This is not a new branch, but rather the moving of an old branch to a new folder.
