How can a friend and I work on the same mod but different version using a remote workspace?

I want to have a friend work on a backport of my mod to 1.12.2 while I work on the 1.14.4 version over remote workspaces. Is there some way to achieve this?

I worry that if this tries to happen, every time that my friend pulls it from GitHub and ports it to 1.12.2, then pushes it back to GitHub, that everything will be overwritten as the 1.12.2 version. Is there a way to prevent this from happening or is that how remote workspaces work?

Try to create different repository (mod-1122, for example) and give access to your friend to this repository. Then he can't replace your files by him one.

For porting (i used this method):

  1. Make a Copy of the mod folder at one catalog where an original one. You may rename folders to know where a 1.12.2 mod files and a 1.14.4 one.
  2. Launch MCr, open a Workspace via opening .workspace file, go to mod settings, select Mod version and select a needed version of MC, you need to wait while software downloads necessary libraries, and you need to regenerate code. A port got ready.
