script/bootstrap- setup required gems and migrate db if needed
script/quality- runs brakeman and rails_best_practices for the app

Clone application as new project with original repository named "rails3-base"
git clone git://github.com/fs/rails3-base.git --origin rails3-base [MY-NEW-PROJECT]
Create your new repo on GitHub and push master into it. Make sure master branch is tracking origin repo.
git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:[MY-GITHUB-ACCOUNT]/[MY-NEW-PROJECT].git git push -u origin master
Run bootstrap script
Make sure all test are green
bundle exec rspec spec bundle exec cucumber features
How to update existing project with new changes from rails3-base repo
You can fetch latest changes from rails3-base repo and merge or cherry-pick commits
git fetch rails3-base git flow feature start rails3-base-update git merge rails3-base/master # fix conflicts # commit # test git flow feature finish rails3-base-update
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- 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.
