Project ID: p199
1. Download the code
This project has no Git repository. If you are the project lead,
you should probably give it one by using the ff init command.
This command will allow you to clone an upstream Git repository, or to
create one from a source directory on your local filesystem.
2. Make your changes
If you need an introduction to Git, the Git homepage is a good place to start.
In short, just edit the code and commit your changes (to your local
repository) using git commit. Note that when it's time to
submit your work, only committed changes will be part of the submission.
3. Install the ff Script
To submit your changes, you'll need to install the
ff script on your local system. This script provides
a command-line interface for several FOSS Factory features. Feel
free to view the script before installing it.
To install it, just place it anywhere in your path and make sure it's
executable. For example, if you are running Ubuntu, you could type this:
sudo curl http://www.fossfactory.org/ff -o /usr/local/bin/ff
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/ff
To use the script, start by typing ff help. You can get
more detailed help on any of the commands by typing
ff help <command>.
4. Set up Git write-access
To gain special access to FOSS Factory's Git repositories, type:
This will transfer your SSH public key to the FOSS Factory server.
Note that you will only have push access to repositories for which you
are the project lead, and to your own code submission repositories.
5. Submit your work
To make a submission to this project, type:
ff submit p199
This will prompt you for your submission comments, then it will create
the submission. The project lead will be notified automatically.
