PledgeBank ========== Checking out the code --------------------- If you just want read-only access to everything, clone this repository as with any other, then cd into it and run git submodule update --init to fetch the contents of the commonlib submodule. If you want to fork your own pledgebank, but don't think you'll have to alter the common code in commonlib, then just do the above on your forked version. If you want to be able to alter commonlib too, then fork pledgebank and commonlib, and do something like the following (using dracos' forks as an example here): ------------------- $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:dracos/pledgebank.git [...] $ cd pledgebank/ $ git config submodule.commonlib.url email@example.com:dracos/commonlib.git $ git submodule update --init [...] Submodule path 'commonlib': checked out 'd49d5b0413b85099397cff550fec7fd94c2943fc' ------------------- By specifying a different submodule URL, you've checked out one that you can push back to. Note that the commonlib will not be on a branch by default, so you'll have to cd commonlib and git checkout master (or whatever) to do that. If you change something in commonlib that you want the parent project to have, you should first commit/push the change in commonlib, then git add commonlib and commit from the parent directory (beware, make sure there's no "/" on the end of git add otherwise git gets all confused). You can presumably change from a read-only commonlib to your own forked version by removing its contents, changing submodule.commonlib.url, and rerunning git submodule, though I've never tried that myself.
