Recommended Workflow


  1. Fork to create a public repo in your own Github account. I'll use my account (greenTara) for the examples. You should replace "greenTara" with your Github user name.

  2. Clone the central repo to your local computer using the read-only URL.(1)

    $ cd path/to/directory/of/Git/repositories
    $ git clone git://

  3. Enter the local repository

    $ cd deliberation-ruleml

  4. Add your forked repository as a read-write remote.(2)

    $ git remote add myFork

  5. Other configuration steps, such as providing your name and email so your commits can be identified should be performed at this point, if they haven't been done already.

    $ git config --global "Tara Athan"

    $ git config --global "taraathan AT"

    $ git config --global push.default simple

Branching to Resolve Issues

  1. Switch the branch for the appropriate version, if necessary.

    $ git checkout 1.03

  2. Update your 1.03 branch from the ruleml remote.(2)

    $ git pull

    There should be no conflicts from this pull, because you have been following the workflow described here and doing all your development in temporary branches.

  3. Select an issue from the issue tracker (8) to work on, or create a new issue.

  4. Create and switch to a new branch in your local repo, with name, say, issue45.(3)

    $ git checkout -b issue45

  5. Modify your local clone:
    a) Make your changes in your usual working environment (plain text editor, eclipse, oXygen, ...), and test your modifications
    b) Optional: If you add or delete files or folders, use

    $ git add -A

c) Commit frequently, using messages that are helpful to you,(4, 6)

$ git commit -a

d) Repeat a-c, or continue to the next step.

  1. When your fix is finished (or far enough along that you want some review), update your repository (again) from the RuleML repo online.(2)

a) Fetch from the central RuleML repository:

$ git pull
  1. Push your commits to a new branch in your remote fork.(2)

    $ git push myFork issue45

  2. Login to your Github account and perform the following:
    a) verify that everything got uploaded OK
    b) submit a pull request to RuleML/deliberation-ruleml from your Github account. If the RuleML repo already has a branch for issue45, submit your pull-request to that branch, otherwise submit to the 1.03 branch.

  3. The RuleML maintainer and/or other developers will make comments on your pull-request if anything needs to be changed. You can push new commits to your issue45 branch and they will automatically be added to the pull-request. If your submission is accepted, the RuleML/issue45 branch will be merged with RuleML/1.03, or possibly a later version. It will then be propagated to all forks when Step #2 or Step #6 is executed by any user.
