What if something is red and I need to ship a bugfix?
If you use trunk based development and have a decent continuous deployment process, you don't ship a bugfix. You rollback production to the previous release version, revert changes in git, then add a regression test that fails due to the bug, fix the bug and then commit.
My bug is not in the latest release so "You rollback production to the previous release version, revert changes in git" won't help.
"Fix the bug and then commit" is exactly what I was referring to as ship a bugfix.
The problem here is not how to ship a bugfix or how to revert/rollback changes. The problem here is what if I need to send code to production if the trunk is unstable.
