Create your new repo on GitHub and push master into it. Make sure master branch is tracking origin repo.
git remote add origin email@example.com:[MY-GITHUB-ACCOUNT]/[MY-NEW-PROJECT].git git push -u origin master
Run bootstrap script
Make sure all test are green
Do not forget to update this file!
mv doc/README_TEMPLATE.md README.md # update README.md git commit -am "Update README.md"
You can fetch latest changes from rails-base repo and merge or cherry-pick commits
git fetch rails-base git flow feature start rails-base-update git merge rails-base/master # fix conflicts # commit # test git flow feature finish rails-base-update
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
