Context

You have an evolving codeline that has code intended to work with a future product release. You are doing most of your work on a Mainline. When you are working in a dynamic development environment, many people are changing the code. Team members are working toward making the system better, but any change can break the system, and changes can conflict. This pattern helps you balance stability and progress in an active development effort.

Problem

How do you keep a rapidly evolving codeline stable enough to be useful?

Solution

Institute policies that are effective in making your main development line stable enough for the work it needs to do. Do not aim for a perfect active development line but for a mainline that is usable and active enough for your needs.
