Information for Project Managers

Migrating from CodePlex

If you currently have a VFPX project on CodePlex, we have detailed instructions to migrate it to GitHub.

Logos

You can add VFPX logos to your source code, project Wiki page, your web site, etc.

Tips

Note: this rest of this page is out-dated and has to be updated for GitHub

This is a work in progress so feel free to add your own notes or comments that you believe will helpful to other project managers on VFPX

  • Update the Wiki page for your project: Important information to include would be
    • Your name and contact information
    • A brief description of your project
    • Instructions on how to join the project
  • Use 2 different projects: One for distribution and one for source control. If you distribute your source control project, any one who downloads your project for evaluation will get a prompt to log in to source control.
  • Prefix your checkins with the project name: Every checkin is listed under the Source Code tab. It is very helpful to show the project that the checkin applies to.
  • Prefix your work items with the project name: Even though you can filter work items by project. It is nice to see, at a glance, what project the work item belongs to.
  • Prefix your discussion threads with the project name: This allows discussions to be easily identified by project.
