Branching and merging
Merge commit, at end of patch series, land all patches at one shot with relatively small merge
Oleg - branch/merges
1) gerrit can handle merge commits, can push merge commit, review and test it
2) current repo set up to cherry pick, if click submit on merge commit, what does it do?
Current automated test environment uses 40-50 machines. 40-50 machine hours of testing per pushed patch.
May need to limit testing to last patch in topic branch (or some sub sampling of patches) to avoid massive autotest load every time a topic branch is rebased.
Overall the discussion about using topic branches for multi-commit changes was good. A number of misconceptions about reasons for the change were worked through. In the end we seemed to left with just technical details to work through, but no major opposition to the general approach.
