== Git commit message guidelines ==
These are guidelines to enhance the readability of the commit messages and the release notes which are made with [http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-shortlog.html git-shortlog]. Please try to follow them as much as possible and make suggestions in the [http://lists.sugarlabs.org/listinfo/sugar-devel sugar devel mailing list] of you find things missing, the guidelines completely insane or just want to demonstrate your appreciation.
* The commit message should start with a single short (less than 50 character) line summarizing the change, followed by a blank line and then a more thorough description. Tools that turn commits into email, for example, use the first line on the Subject: line and the rest of the commit in the body. The git-shortlog command that we use to write the release notes will strip the more detailed description.
* If your commit does fix a certain bug make sure that the summarizing line contains the bug number prepended by a '#' at the '''end''' of the line (e.g. #14). It is implied that you mean the [http://trac.sugarlabs.org Sugar Labs trac] instance. If not please prepend an identifier like OLPC#123, RH#456, Debian#666, Ubuntu#53.
* Start your commit message with a capital letter.
* Suffix no dot at the end of the summarizing line.
* Fixes for typing errors and pylint fixes happen quite often. Just mark them _Typo and respectively _Pylint for easier reading.

Import a module from dev.laptop.org

git clone git://dev.laptop.org/projects/pippy-activity
  • See all the remote branches with:
git remote show origin
  • Check out the remote branches you want to migrate, e.g.
git checkout -b sucrose-0.82 origin/sucrose-0.82
  • Push it to git.sugarlabs.org with something like:
git push gitorious@git.sugarlabs.org:pippy-activity/mainline.git 
  • Add the pootle user as a committer (from the "add committer" link on the mainline page) and send mail to Sayamindu, to point pootle to new remote.
  • Notify sugar-devel about the move.
  • Make sure that sugar-jhbuild points to the new repository (ask someone to do it for you if you have no access)
