Preparation: better explanation for creating the branch
==Preparation==
Before you start porting your activity you are encouraged to branch off a stable branch. This will allow you to keep on doing stable releases on the stable branch and new releases on the master branch.We highly recommend that you use the 'sugar-0.94' as the stable branch name because this will keep the repositories consistent and eases the development work. Let's step through this with a real life example:
The latest release of hello-world was version 3(commit 04fb9beb708f1078aae93995da3ec06bac7aa433). We highly recommend want to branch off at that point. If you use the 'sugar-0.94' as did not do any changes after the last stable branch name because this will keep the repositories consistent and eases the development work. In git you can commit simply create a branch like thiswith:
git branch sugar-0.94
This creates If you made already commits after that, you need to go to that commit first and create a branch at that specific point in our case commit 04fb9beb708f1078aae93995da3ec06bac7aa433, there is a command to do that in one go: git checkout -b sugar-0.94 04fb9beb708f1078aae93995da3ec06bac7aa433 In both cases this has created a local branch, as you can see by running 'git branch'; you should see the following(if you did the second command you will have sugar-0.94 already selected):
