Subject Re: [Git] Ignore files?
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:00:13 GMT
HI Erik,

as you already notice we must to setup the .gitignore file.
Until we get write status we can't get this file correctly configured. In
the meanwhile you can setup your own until we get write access and can
commit it.

Now that we are at few hours to fully work on GIT, I'm sure you will love
it. For example, you could work with Mike much better making your own
branches and taking control over your commits and what you want to share in
the remote repository. The problems you both face the previous week where
one can step changes over the other are gone thanks to branching feature.
You only have to take patience to master this feature and you will see that
is very powerful and get lots of control. In SVN the main problem is that
all happens in one single place since branches are not usable and this
causes that kind problems while working with other people.

Regarding the problem you commented about your changes not committed in
your workspace. Justin and others talked about it and share solutions. Just
to complement, I think you should clone the flex git repo, extract a patch
from SVN with your changes and apply it to your git clone. Then I recommend
to branch and commit your changes in that branch so you continue to work in
your local repo. When GIT remote repo will come writeable you could push
your branch to the remote repo. This will make you safe that you're not
breaking anything since your branch will be isolated. When that branch will
be shared remotely, Mike will be able to checkout and work in it, or fork
again to make whatever experimental change he like. Then you all can plan
the merge and when ready merge into develop.
