Just about everything we do as developers can be considered creating change. While it is only natural for us to focus on the details of the specific domain, project, feature, or file that we are working on -  the changes we create impact much more. From the broader project, to internal release management, to unknown products around the globe, we have a responsibility to create our changes in a way that considers this bigger picture. Darren discusses the concept of structured changes in the context of revision control best practices, drawing from his own experience as a contributor, maintainer, and open source mentor. He will share examples and counter examples, and discuss the specific ways in which following these best practices benefits your company as well as the broader open source project you are contributing to.
