For over a decade, dCache.ORG has provided software which is used at more than 80 sites around the world, providing reliable services for WLCG experiments and others. This can be achieved only with a well established process from white board, where ideas are created, through packages, installed on the production systems. Since early 2013 we have moved to git as out source code management system as well as to GitHub for our source code hosting service. This presentation will show how techniques and tools are used by dCache developers to manage code and releases, how to handle external contributions and still keep the quality and reliability of the provided packages.
