The GitHub Gem ============= This gem'll work hand-in-hand with GitHub's API to help you out. Catch us in the #github room on freenode if you want to get involved. Or just fork and send a pull request. =========== Getting started =========== $ gem install defunkt-github -s http://gems.github.com Run it: $ github <command> <args> ============= Pulling Changes ============= Let's say you just forked `github-gem` on GitHub from defunkt. $ git clone git://github.com/YOU/github-gem.git $ cd github-gem $ github pull defunkt This will setup a remote and branch for defunkt's repository at master. In this case, a 'defunkt/master' branch. If defunkt makes some changes you want, simply `github pull defunkt`. This will leave you in the 'defunkt/master' branch after pulling changes from defunkt's remote. After confirming that defunkt's changes were what you wanted, run `git checkout master` and then `git merge defunkt/master` to merge defunkt's changes into your own master branch. In summary: $ github pull defunkt $ git checkout master $ git merge defunkt/master If you've already reviewed defunkt's changes and just want to merge them into your master branch, use the `merge` flag: $ github pull --merge defunkt ========== Contributors ========== - defunkt - maddox - halorgium - kballard
