22 `git remote -v`

24 Usually you will have `origin` (in the case of a clone) and something like `upstream` if you've forked the repo. To update those you need to run
25
26 `git remote set-url origin https://github.com/adobe/source-code-pro.git`
27
28 If you have other remote repositories you will need to run that command again and replace `origin` with the name of the remote repository (eg `upstream`).

38 Requirements
39 ----
40
41 For building binary font files from source, installation of the [Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType](http://www.adobe.com/devnet/opentype/afdko.html) (AFDKO) is necessary. The AFDKO tools are widely used for font development today, and are part of most font editor applications.

43 Building one font
44 ----
45
46 Key to building OTF or TTF fonts is `makeotf`, which is part of the AFDKO toolset.
47 Information and usage instructions can be found by executing `makeotf -h`.
48
49 In this repository, all necessary files are in place for building the OTF and TTF fonts.
50 For example, build a binary OTF font for the Regular style like this:
51
52 $ cd Roman/Regular/
53 $ makeotf -r
54
55
56 Building all fonts
57 ----
58
59 For convenience, a shell script named `build.sh` is provided in the root directory.
60 It builds all OTFs and TTFs, and can be executed by typing:
61
62 $ ./build.sh
