Looking at forward and reverse integration

The last set of advanced features we're going to cover are called forward integration and reverse integration. These are a process that you use with branching and merging. Consider you might have a product, as we talked about before, but it has two separate features that can be worked on by two different developers independently. If these two different features interact, as your developers each work in their private branch, they may want to from time to time check their changes into the main branch so the other developer can get them, and they may also want to get changes from the main branch back into their private branch to continue working.

So let's take a look and see how that works. So we start out with our main branch, and we create two separate branches, one for each developer, feature 1 branch, and feature 2 branch. Initially, they both contain the same set of information that's in the main branch, and now they begin to diverge individually. In the feature 1 branch, developer nu...
