Manual update of git-deployed Agaric production site

For a project named (and with the repository and server user name) 'example'.

ssh [email protected]
cd example
git pull

For the git pull to work your public key must be in /home/vlad/.ssh/authorized_keys on the test server (simone.mayfirst.org). You can get this value from /home/yourusername/.ssh/authorized_keys. (@Stefan can we in some way give people with access to simone access to use it as the vlad user automatically?)

Git remote branches are different on my local compared to server

The local checkout on my computer and the one on the dev server are looking at the same Git repository, but the results of git branch -a (show all remote branches) is very different.

Reason: git pull origin master does not get all the branch and tag information the way git fetch does!

Solution:

git fetch origin

Now git branch -a and git checkout branchicareabout both work.

Drupal ingredient-dish-meal code-module-site analogy, and different cooks and restaurants

Code as ingredients, modules as dishes, sites as meals, installation profile as recipe, and restaurants with a menu as providers of distributions (or SaaS, though she doesn't mention that).

Preventing Agile Scrum methodology from degrading code quality

"practical advice for avoiding [delivering broken software with Scrum] – whether you’re an Organizer or you’re an Activist Developer"

The key problem identified is that incentive to abandon code quality to meet time/budget and feature goals.

The solution is to, first, not allow tests, in code, automated, or human, and other issues of code quality to be cut off from the features that are being built. Hide the time in the task estimates if absolutely necessary.
