I have cloned Askbot from Github, set it up in development mode. I have removed the origin and added my local repo as its origin and committed it to my repository so that my teammates can checkout.

If I need to update/upgrade Askbot, how do I do it?

This is what I have done:

In my virtual env,

  1. git clone git:// my_site;
  2. cd my_site;
  3. python develop;
  4. askbot-setup;
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete

you'll have to add another origin pointing to the askbot repo on github you can do this by

git remote add askbotgithub <github url here>

and then to get the latests commits do:

git pull askbotgithub master

this will pull the latest changes from the askbot on github origin to your local repo.

Note: you can name the origin with other names, just used askbotgithub as example.

Hi Fitoria, I just followed the steps mentioned above and was able to upgrade to the latest. But when I did git status, it showed only the changes I had done. I want to upload the newer version of askbot to my local repo. How do I do this? Thanks

@Nikhil in your case do a commit and then push it to your origin that you will have write access to.
