Other Development Issues


Freezes come in two major forms:

  • feature freeze: a period when no significant functionality is added

  • code freeze: a period when all changes to the code are discouraged and only changes that fix known bugs are permitted


A fork is when a group of developers takes code from a free software project and starts a brand new free software project

If at all possible, Don't fork.

Of course, there are lots of situation when they are the right choice.
