Using GitHub inside a company
View gist:5511916

I'm doing some research on how companies use GitHub Enterprise (or public GitHub) internally. If you can help out by answering a few questions, I'd greatly appreciate it.

  1. What is the primary setup? Is there an organization and each official repo is owned by that organization?
  2. Does every engineer have a fork of each repo they're working on?
  3. Are engineers allowed to push directly to the official repo? Or must all commits go through a pull request?
  4. Do engineers work on feature branches on the main repo or on their own forks?
  5. Do you require engineers to squash commits and rebase before merging?
  6. Overall, what is the workflow for getting a new commit into the main repository?
  7. What sort of hooks do you make use of?
  8. Are there any ops issues you encountered? (Scaling, unforeseen downtime, etc.)

BBC News' RTL (right to left) solution

Right-to-Left (RTL)


There are two methods to use in order to flip CSS styles: interpolated properties and the flip() function.

  • Interpolation should be used for any property which has a direction (e.g. padding-left, margin-right, border-right, left, etc.)
  • flip() should be used for all other properties

Which properties need to be flipped?
