## Internal Workflow
This part is dedicated to the internal workflow and reflects what is considered
to be best practice at Research and Development at SUB Göttingen. For an
extensive description please consult the [RDD Technical Reference](
### git flow
We are using [`git flow`](
This means that all developments will be reviewed before they will be merged to
the `develop` branch. The `develop` branch is the default one.
When a branch is dedicated to a ticket, the branch name should start with the
number of the ticket and match a pattern like `(bugfix|hotfix|feature)/#\d+-[a-z\-]`.
All issues will be arranged in [milestones]( Milestones are
always group-wide, so we combine tickets from all projects at the [SADE group](
to a single milestone.
All projects in the SADE group are using [branch protection]( ([local documentation](
for `master` and `develop` branches. No one is allowed to push
directly to these branches except for the release workflow. To be able to
merge develop to master locally and to use the git flow command line tools, both
branches will be set to **unprotected** (allow to push for maintainers) for this
single action.
### Meetings
Once in a month all team members will meet at an informal (and usually internal)
meeting to discuss issues and proceedings. If external participants are interested
in, they can contact us via [this e-mail address](
