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.


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


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.
