The Workflow

Let's use the sim-recon repository as an example.

  1. Create local repository in the current directory
    • git clone https:/github.com/jeffersonlab/sim-recon
  2. Create a local topic branch
    • cd sim-recon
    • git branch my_work
  3. Check-out the new topic branch
    • git checkout my_work
  4. ... work on topic branch, make changes, add them, commit them...
  5. Push local topic branch to public topic branch
    • git push origin my_work:new_bug_fix
    • creates branch "new_bug_fix" on public repository
  6. Issue pull request
    • go to the GitHub site and log in
    • navigate to the repository page (https://github.com/JeffersonLab/sim-recon)
    • switch to the "new_bug_fix" branch (pull down menu)
    • click on "pull request"
      • creates action item on GitHub, a request that changes on branch "new_bug_fix" be merged onto master branch
  7. Ask someone else to act on pull request. They
    • go to the GitHub site and log in
    • navigate to the repository page (https://github.com/JeffersonLab/sim-recon)
    • click on "pull requests" in the right-hand column
    • fill in and submit web form to merge in changes

Notes on this Workflow

  • Everyone needs an account on GitHub.
  • Anyone can update the master branch.
  • Changes should go onto topic branches, but enforced only administratively.
