Thanks very much to Holger, MJ and Stefano for their helpful replies. :) On 02/09/2007, at 6:28 PM, Holger Levsen wrote:

I was about to do that, but thought I should read the rest of the thread first, so...

I put this on my todo-after-reading the thread, too.
It used to be so simple: I have SVN embedded in my translation editor  AND my file manager . Now I have to go back to email submissions for dpkg.The SVN support for LocFactoryEditor seems to be a script. It should be easy to copy and write a script for git, once you have it working.
I don't understand PathFinder's support. Linux users could even mount gitfs: http://www.sfgoth.com/~mitch/linux/gitfs/
PathFinder is a file manager. One of its services, available via any pane you choose, is SVN. So I have one pane of PathFinder running SVN: it has buttons for the main SVN commands, plus an interactive option, and displays the output. It's a bit quicker than using the shell, which adds up when you're updating a lot of individual files.
Are other people successfully checking out (cloning) dpkg via SSH?clone != checkout. Clone is more like download, then checkout. git splits the downloading and the checking out. Hope that helps,
Yes, it does. It takes me a while nowadays to get my head around anything new, but I should be able to do it, in bits.
And then Stefano said:
Clytie,check your user. I'm quite sure Christian username on alioth/git/ svn isbubulle and on his machine too, I'm sc-guest on alioth and sc on my machine. ssh send my username to alioth and it's wrong. Try: git-clone git+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/git/dpkg/dpkg dpkg
and he was spot on! I did need to specify a different username, which didn't occur to me because I'm not used to git. I do it in SVN checkouts, so it should have occurred to me.
So I now have dpkg cloned via git. :DThankyou to all three of you. It really helps to have support like this on the list. :)
Now, to step 2: how to commit changes. I have a sneaky feeling, from reading the SVN-to-Git guide to which Kartik so kindly referred, that you not only have to "commit" your changes, but also "push" them afterwards. I think there might be a hook script to do this.
I will always be simply updating the directory, editing the file then committing/pushing my changes, so something that does the commit/push part in one step would be useful.
