We are developing an open source project, and we are using Mercurial for source management control. The Mercurial repository for this project is public (we are using Bitbucket). Now we have a client for whom we need to customize our open source software. These customizations must be kept private, so we probably need to create […]
For example, https://github.com/vanillaforums/Garden is the GitHub repository. But I only want to ‘watch’ this directory https://github.com/vanillaforums/Garden/tree/master/plugins in the repository. How do I do that? There doesn’t seem to be a way.
I know there’s an option to make a local repository for your project when you first create it, but is there an option create a repository after you’ve created your project?
The situation is as follows: We have some project which persists on Github, and deploy it to Heroku, which has its own mini-Git. Some changes were applied directly to Heroku (cloned repository from Heroku, made changes and pushed). In a meanwhile the master branch on Github has gained also some changes. Now when I want […]
“Traditional” version control systems follow a “Cathedral” model — all the code is stored in one main repository. Distributed Version Control Systems like git allow a lot more flexibility in organizing your multiple repositories. You can “push” changes, “pull” changes, and “clone” repositories. Have you organized your repositories along your workgroup or workflow lines? Have […]
I am working on doing a migration from SVN to Git. I have already used git-svn to get the history into a single git repository, and I already know how to use git-subtree to split that repository into smaller ones. This question is not about how to do the migration, it is about when to […]
I’m trying to sync my jb repository but I receive this odd error. funny thing is that it does not always crash at the same point (though it might be just a synchronization issue since I add -j10). command: $ repo sync -j10 error: error: Exited sync due to fetch errors I’m aware of the […]
I am using the Git GUI called ‘Souretree’ by Atlassian and in particular the ‘Gitflow’ module to manage various branches. I just created a ‘release’ branch that I don’t want to merge back into either the master or develop branches. How do I get rid of it ? Can I just delete it ? My […]
I have a local Git repository with my own branches, stashes and all that jazz, and I’d like to add this repository into IntelliJ IDEA, so that I can manage it, instead of creating a new copy of the repository from within IDEA. How do I do that? Thanks!
It just so happens that we share a library between 3 different mobile platforms. There is much debate within the office on what is the best tool to use to manage this library. Repo (Android) from what I read is a tool built on top of git used for managing the hundreds of git repositories […]
