Gitpal.org - real version control of content

Room: 
H-2
Language: 
English

Basic idea: provide an API to map Git functionality into Drupal to do version control of content with all the benefits of distributed branching models.

Git comes with all the necessary methods to keep control of content and allows us to work with remote repositories. Making this functionality available to the Drupal Entity API and user interface will enable us to maintain content on several branches, same like we do with source code. Of course there are several challenges to solve, but a reliable implementation will allow us to provide further modules to enable automation, deployment and merging of content without loosing track of the history of it - even on distributed sites!

The session will summarize the experience we made so far and introduce the working prototype to the Drupal Camp in Frankfurt! Interested can join us in the code sprints as well! You can find us on Slack: https://drupal.slack.com/messages/gitpal/
