# GIT Workflow
Follow the ideas of [a-successful-git-branching-model](,
Follow the git workflow:
- Create a new branch for all new features, following the naming convention
- Merge features in the `develop` branch only
- Correct Bugs in issue branches, following the naming convention `issue/XYZ`
- Merge issues in the `develop` branch, except when it is a hotfix, then merge
to `master` and `develop`
- For all merges create a meaningful *Merge Request* in GitLab
- For features and issues *Merge Request* into the master branch should be created in GitLab
- Do not push into `master` directly
- Releases are created in a new branch `release/VERSION` that is not deleted after merged into master.
After the merge, a tag with name `vVERSION` should be created.

## Generale file structure
Every header file should start with a copyright notice and an include guard `#pragma once`,
where the text of the copyright notice is given in the file `tools/license.templ.txt`
