Validations are meant to verify functionality of tripleo systems. Therefore a special care should be given to testing your code before submitting a review.
Branches and version management
Validation Framework project uses semantic versioning and derives names of stable branches from the released minor versions. The latest minor version released is the only exception as it is derived from the master branch.
Therefore, all code used by version 1.n.* of the project resides in stable/1.n branch, and when version 1.(n+1) is released, new branch stable/1.(n+1) will be created.
By default, stable branches recieve only bug fixes and feature backports are decided on case basis after all the necessary discussions and procedures have taken place.
