Docs Multi-Versioning: An Effective Documentation Approach Using Git Branching Strategy

The prima-facie of open source software (OSS) is perfectly described in Linus’s law: “Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow”. The rapid paradigm shift to adopt the OSS model, envisages docs to be more or less like code, using same systems, processes, and workflows. For OSS docs to be scalable and effective tool-chains used play a pivotal role. Let’s take a deep-dive and cognize multi-versioned docs using GitHub and unleash its true potential by conferring and devising a branching strategy. With this notion, lets us understand the branching strategy, multi-versioning, automated builds and how these techniques benefit and impact overall documentation platform.
