PLEASE WATCH ONLY IN HD! OTHERWISE TOO BLURRY! THANKS! (it’s highly compressed)

Now you got your git repository cloned…. to get write access @ sourceforge git repo:

1. register @ sourceforge.net

2. generate ssh-keys

3. upload your public key (top right corner „Me“ -> Account -> services -> ssh keys (this was 03.2013, may have changed)

4. contact/ask the project-administrator to grant you write access!

… git works better than svn in terms of moving/deleting files, but the workflow is a bit confusing at first…

the git-concept:

1. you have a local git repository (/var/www/projectname/.git)

2. via commandline you „hook-up“ the local repository with a remote repository (transmission is done via ssh, keys or password)

3. first you commit to local repository, than you do a push to the remote repository…

4. merges are done „in-file“ means: git changes your files, inserts all the differences (<—- difference here) and you need to edit it with your favourite IDE.
