Subject RE: Need guide for my first 'push'

I see that you submitted the patch.

There is no way to do commits to Apache OpenOffice via GIT.

I had not encountered that problem with Tortoise SVN on my Windows XP machine.  Most of my
working copies are in shared folders on a home server, and not even that is a problem.

There have been serious performance improvements.  You might try it again.  You can run the
command-line SVN, of course.

I had bad experience with TortoiseSVN. It puts itself in a way into the 
Windows explorer, that the explorer becomes so slow, that it was 
unusable. Therefore I uninstalled TortoiseSVN. For making patches that 
other push, I did not need it.

Command 'git svn dcommit' should push the changes. But I don't know 
whether the commit message will be transfered too or if I need something 
in addition. And I'm afraid of disturbing something, otherwise I would 
simple try it. Perhaps I wait, whether Ariel has an answer, for he guide 
me to git-svn.

Making the patch available for review before pushing is a good idea. I 
have attached it to

Kind regards
