Commit Triggers sometimes needed for revision control...

When you "commit" a changeset in most source control systems you can
run a trigger.

Sometimes the trigger sends out email, sometimes it just checks for a
common mistake.

These are the ones I need for myself, and others:

  • Check all comments for spelling errors.
  • Check all comments against Google. If Google returns no
    results, the comment probably won't parse when a human reads it.
  • Flag all swear words. AKA #ifdef CRAP
  • Check blood alcohol content (not a problem I have...)
  • Check caffeine level (a problem I have...)
  • Did "make test" really get run before the code was pushed?
  • ...
  • Link | Leave a comment |
