Code Review of master


I would like to know if we can submit a master branch for a code review. It is that I want to submit my project for code review for the first time. Since I'm  the only person working on this project, there are no branches for the repo.

Thanks for the help.

You cannot code review the very first commit to master --- at least not using Bitbucket's pull-request functionality for running code reviews!

The best workaround is to push an empty commit first:


git commit --allow-empty

git push


Oh...ok. Thanks for the reply.

If you have a repository with commits allready in the master, you can still do a code review artificially by making a new repository with two branches.

So, how to do this when already a lot of work was done on the master branch? 

Rebasing public commits can be a mess, although in this case there is only 1 developer and no other branches AFAIK.
