This page summarizes additional information that might be useful for deployment of development of askbot.
At askbot we use git to keep track of the source code, and the main repository is hosted at github.
With git you can always grab the latest code of askbot from the latest askbot code:
git clone git://github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel.git
Do some customization by editing files and then:
git add <list-of-changed-files> git commit -m 'explain why you have changed some files'
Bring updates from the main repo:
git git fetch origin master:github #.. onto a local branch called github git checkout master git merge github
If all goes well, you are done. Otherwise, you may need to resolve the conflict.
