Repository work flow structure

From OpenEMR Project Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Our main official repository is kept on github. We migrated from cvs to git on 10/30/2010, which is described on the git migration wiki page. We then migrated the repository from sourceforge to GitHub on 8/31/2016. Our GitHub repository also has seven official mirrors, which are described below. The proper way for individual developers to set up their personal git repository is described on the git for OpenEMR tutorial wiki page. To avoid breaking the main GitHub git repository, we are using the following git repository structure, work flow and development structure:

Official git Main Repository


Official git Repository Mirrors





  • repository link:
  • web page link:
  • mirrors from GitHub repository every 30 minutes via an external script

  • repository link: git://
  • web page link:
  • Supposed to mirror from the GitHub repository every 60 minutes automatically by the site.

Experimental Repository Mirrors


This is actually a Bazaar repository, which the Launchpad site automatically converts from git. Due to technical limitations (they plan to fix this), it is only able to mirror the master branch.

Developer roles and work flow

Integration Developers

  • These are the only developers with commit access to the GitHub repository.
  • They have demonstrated common sense and proficiency in git and OpenEMR development.
  • They are responsible for committing their own code.
  • They are willing to commit the code of the "Privileged Developers" (when requested).
  • Standardized methods to commit to the GitHub repository have been documented in the 'Advanced Usage' section of the git for OpenEMR tutorial wiki page . Rather than pull in the entire remote branch of somebody else's code, recommend pulling in each commit via the 'cherry-pick' command (this is specifically documented on the git for OpenEMR tutorial wiki page).

Privileged Developers

  • These are developers that have demonstrated common sense and proficiency in OpenEMR development.
  • They do not have commit access to the GitHub repository.
  • Their code will be directly committed to the GitHub repository upon request to an "Integration Developer" in the Developer forum. (will be committed within 48 hours). To clarify, this is for code that is ready to be committed; ie. do not request commits of code that might need further review.

Standard Developers

  • Standard developers whom have or are in process of submitting code.
  • They do not have commit access to the GitHub repository.
  • Their code needs to be reviewed before committing to the GitHub repository.
  • Best way to do this is to submit code via a public git branch. (instructions on how to do this can be found on this wiki page). If this is done correctly, then it only takes an "Integration Developers" several minutes to commit your code to the GitHub repository if deemed acceptable by the community review.


(Only sourceforge account name, company association, and link to their public repository are shown.)
(Ideally, each developer should have their own sourceforge account along with a public repository.)
