Trunk-based Development vs. Git Flow

Hi Brandon nice article. (TBD not so good section) →“If you are running an open-source project, then Git flow is the better option. You need very strict control over changes and you can’t trust contributors. After all, anyone can contribute. Including online trolls.” Hmm. How come Github forks don’t solve that? I’ve been doing open source since ’99 and if I don’t admit trolls as committers, I don’t encounter “anyone can contribute”. Before GitHub and PRs we used to have to consume patch-sets in JIRA or by email, and you could ignore trolls that way too. the GH fork system means you’re an order more likely to receive contribs. I’m the guy behind trunkbaseddevelopment.com by the way, thanks for linking to it.
