Fundraising and Git

As of April 2012, fundraising is using both Subversion and Git to manage repositories.

Working with Git

You will want to have a look at the Mediawiki Git Workflow to understand how to use git and Gerrit

DonationInterface is under git.

Checking out branches

One of the strengths of git is best shown in branching.

In the following example, you will see how to create a branch to work on Fundraising 2012 Mingle ticket #2

This examples assumes you have already set up git review. If you have not done so, please see Git Workflow.

cd extensions/DonationInterface

Make sure you are up to date and create a branch based on the Mingle ticket

git pull origin master

git checkout -b mingle-fr-2012-2 master

You can check to see which branches are available and which branch you are currently using with the command:

git branch -a

You should see something like:

* mingle-fr-2012-2
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master

This shows that we are using the branch we just created for the Mingle ticket.

If you are creating a branch to address a Bugzilla ticket, create a branch in this format:

git checkout -b bug25090 master

Check your status to see what you need to commit

git status

Preparing your commit

Add the file to the commit.

git add some_file_you_edited

Commit your code

See make and commit your change

git commit

If you have files that you do not want to commit, you can hide them with:

git stash

Check your status:

git status

Untracked files will stay put.

You can then see what has been stashed:

git stash list
stash@{0}: WIP on mingle-fr-2012-140: 5b11178 Adding Selenium IDE test for supplemental_address.

Rebase your branch

You can now rebase with master to push your commit to review:

git pull origin master
git rebase master

Run review

git review
