Changing repository description in git

I’d like to change repository description of the project I’m working on but “Edit” button does not appear in GitHub web site. I use GitHub for Windows and provided shell. Although description is present on web site .git\description file has default contents and \description file is absent in root folder. Where is the description of […]

SSHing git@github.com shows wrong/old SSH key

k, so I was setting up Git and followed this tutorial to set up an SSH key. The fingerprint was 16:27:…:a6:48. I installed the GitHub client for Windows which set up a new SSH key automatically called github_rsa in the %user%/.ssh/ folder. I deleted the “old” SSH key (don’t ask me why) and set up […]

Correctly committing versioned, and built (minified) files to GitHub with Gulp.js

Background info I am writing a small JavaScript library and would like to make the contribution flow as easy as possible if others end up wanting to contribute. Currently, I am experiencing issues with versioning built files that go in the dist folder. I am using: Git for version control, and Github for repository management. […]

“An internal error occurred” when trying to commit to git from eGit in Eclipse

[SOLVED] Somehow, I managed to not have “write” permissions to the .git directory. So was trying to write the commit and getting bounced. I’ve been using Eclipse for a few months, but had been just running git from the CLI. I decided that was inefficient and that I wanted to use eGit, so I started […]

prevent authors from merging their own code on github

In order to gain some compliance certification we need to ensure that anyone putting code into master was not an author on that code, to prevent someone from single-handedly inserting malicious code. The approach I’m thinking of is to use master branch protection with a status check. We’ll have an intermediary branch that we merge […]

Push with Git Bash works, but fails with Git Gui

I’m hitting a weird roadblock with Git. I’m trying to push some code to GitHub using Git Gui. I’ve done this many times before, but this is the first time on this machine. I’ve set up the keys like I’ve done on my other machines, and added the public key to my GitHub account. But, […]

Creating initial wiki for new repositories

I’m creating multiple private repositories via GitHub API that should include predefined wiki pages. Wiki pages are handled via a separate git repository. Unfortunately creating a repository with the has_wiki flag turned on does not set up the wiki repository automatically. The Home document only seems to be created when I click on the Pages […]

GitHub: How to do code review on new file with more than 1500 lines

On a project that I work on, we have a major feature branch which is nearing a merge into the main branch. There are a lot of commits which shouldn’t reviewed individually, so I created a PR for the branch and looked at the per-file diff https://github.com/haskell/cabal/pull/2952/files However, there are a few new files which […]

VS2013 git – Project marked as pending delete

I recently wanted to try VS2013 and the Git tool for SC. Everything worked great until I did something, but dont know what… I created a nodejs application and pushed it to github. However, the “main” script was not directly into the root repo directory, so I manually created another repo to be able to […]
