Getting Started with Modular Boost Library Development Workflow

Workflow is the term used to describe the steps a Boost library developer follows to create and maintain a library.

The workflow model Boost recommends is nowadays called GitFlow?. It was introduced as a simple blog posting by Vincent Driessen on January 5th, 2010, that went viral and has quickly become a de facto standard software engineering practice.

This workflow has probably become so successful, and is recommended for Boost libraries, because it scales so well.

The GitFlow? model diagram is available as a PDF file - print it out and hang it on your wall!
