Dakota Git Description

The primary upstream Git repository for Dakota core, and its open source third-party libraries, are hosted on a public-facing machine software.sandia.gov. The top-level repository includes submodules for public TPLs external, pecos, and surfpack. It also has submodules for SNL-specific content which provide extension points for other external sites to provide their own site-specific packages.

All respoitories have a "devel" branch into which changes are integrated.  An automated process tests changes made to the devel branches before pushing these to the more stable "master" branches.
