The hello-samza example project has only a single master branch right now. This branch is set to use the latest release of Samza (0.7.0, currently). We've been discussing creating a development branch for hello-samza so that developers can experiment with the unreleased version of Samza (0.8.0, currently the master branch for the samza repo).
I'm proposing having the following branch structure:
- master: uses the latest released version of Samza (currently 0.7.0).
- unstable: uses Samza's master branch.
- 0.X.0: all older (non-latest) releases will have their own branch.
When we release 0.8.0, we will cut an 0.7.0 branch, and master will be switched to use 0.8.0. The unstable branch will always remain on samza's master branch.
