Wish me luck.
I just typed the following commands:
- git clone https://github.org/freebsd/freebsd-head.git
- cd freebsd-head
- git branch army
- git checkout army
and started my own local branch. Wish me luck. Oh, I've said it, but with git, I think I might need it. I actually didn't type exactly the above, but that's what I should have typed. git reset seems to have been my friend. We'll see next time I pull from github... and if I can get the rebase command to work for me better than mercurial has been working for me at work.
Now, to figure out how to do a similar thing to patch queues, except I really want to just correct commits rather than use a whole different set of commands.
Some years ago I’ve made a little
web application which allowed one
to browse FreeBSD
by tags, à la delicious.
The tags were not created by users but were
instead generated from a couple of fields
taken from every
so it was not exactly a “social” software.
There was some limited amount
of discussion on FreeBSD mailing lists, and a publicly
accessible readonly SVN repository
was created by my friend Erwin,
but the overall interest was rather low.
Over time I moved on and basically stopped
working on the project,
but recently I had an idea - not exactly to
re-surrect it, but to make it more
easy for people who are interested to
port-tags at github.
Github is a tool
to host git repositories
of your open-source projects.
Anybody can easily clone your repository,
fork it completely, or submit their
changes back to you.
I only started using it today,
so I cannot say much about its features
and how convenient they are,
but from what I’ve heard,
it is very very nice.
So, if you are interested,
and have got round tuits to spare,
please hack on
port-tags - maybe
some good will eventually come out of it.
