Repositories Branching and Dates

Branches Creation and Maintenance

  • To create remote working branches in KDE git repository, please look on this tutorial from KDE TechBase.
  • During GoSC2012 coding time, git/master will still the stable implementation receiving important fixes. A development branch must be sync with git/master periodically. To do it, see below as example how to sync digiKam "3.0.0" branch tracking "remotes/origin/development/3.0.0" from KDE git repository:
$>git checkout master
$>git pull --rebase
$>git checkout -b 3.0.0 remotes/origin/development/3.0.0
  Branch 3.0.0 set up to track remote branch development/3.0.0 from origin.
  Switched to a new branch '3.0.0'
$>git merge master
  Merge made by the 'recursive' strategy.
  ...
$>git push

The 2 first lines take a sure that your local master repository is up to date. The 3rd line create in local the "3.0.0" development branch. Merge between master and 3.0.0 branch is done with 4th line. Git can ask you to resolve conflicts here. When it's done, it will ask you a commit comment. Finally push your merge into remote KDE repository.

Note: If you have already created 3.0.0 branch, just run "git checkout 3.0.0" as well instead git checkout -b 3.0.0 remotes/origin/development/3.0.0. This give this concatened command line:

$>git checkout master; git pull --rebase; git checkout 3.0.0; git pull; git merge master
  ...
$>git push
