comment GIT workflow for web development
CI is on my radar, just not currently in the mix. Point well taken though.

Thinking a LOT about this. Thanks for the insight. FWIW, I specifically avoiding using the term CI because we don't use CI. Maybe we should, but we don't, it's just too cumbersome for the dozens of projects we work on in a given week, some short term, some long term.

@gnat - I completely rewrote the question to show more research and be very specific about the answer I'm looking for.

comment GIT workflow for web development
@gnat I'm not sure what more I could share in that regard? gitflow being so release oriented is cumbersome. GitHub-Flow purports to be good for daily deploying, but having dozens of branches waiting to be merged in also looks like chaos. Was hoping someone would answer with "X is great for web dev because Y". It's well covered in the link I provided, I guess I could excerpt quotes from it?

comment How should I incorporate a hotfix back into a feature branch using gitflow?
Interesting. I can't say I'm an expert on Gitflow, but my understanding was hotfix's were singular commits against master, not branches, and I simply cherry picked them to develop. Reading up thought I was totally wrong on that.

comment Is licensing an issue for Git Submodules?
I think maybe this question needs to be restructured. Git really doesn't have anything to do with licensing of code nor any affect on it. The question could perhaps be phrased "Does distributing my software with links to download GPL licensed modules still make my software subject to those modules licensing requirements"? The distribution tool is irrelevant. I think the heart of it comes back to, does your software compile/run independent of the GPL modules.

comment Continuing to code on large projects
Version control is trivially easy to use these days for huge benefits. If you can't remember every LOC you've ever changed on a project, you should be using version control for it. +1 here on test & document too.

comment How can my team avoid frequent errors after refactoring?
As others have commented. TDD. You probably already recognize you should have unit tests for as much of the code as possible. While writing unit tests just for the sake of it is a waste of resources, when you start refactoring any component you should start with extensive test writing before touching the core code.

comment Should I use branches for example uses of a github repo?
While I agree with the above, the other option would be to use a fork. I don't think it's a viable solution for you so I'm not proposing it as an answer. In no case would I use a branch, branches should really have a start (branch) and an end (eventual merge).
