Re: eyeos/oneye on sourceforge

I moved the oneye related files to my own server some weeks ago. Some day after the eyeos project at sf.net began to close down.

Whenever I get some free time to work for the project, I'll move the latest files to GitHub for better user and developer interaction. Even though I'm really no Git fan sad !

Re: eyeos/oneye on sourceforge

I forked on Github by the way, apparently I had an account there.
Why did you actually move from SF to them ?

Re: eyeos/oneye on sourceforge

Hehe, I just posted http://forums.oneye-project.org/viewtopic.php?id=239 wink ...

I moved, cause I hope others might start helping, too. I'm not a Git fan, cause I like TortoiseSVN and TortoiseGit when working produces a ton of problems for me. But I got in touch with GitHub for Windows and found out, that it's a really nice tool smile .

Hope you like the movement?!

Re: eyeos/oneye on sourceforge

Please create pull requests to get your stuff into the final repository.

Would you like to remove all sf.net links, that are still in the code?

Was just curious.
Also, what does forking actually do ?
I've never used Github except for downloading web games.

Re: eyeos/oneye on sourceforge

Git is somewhat different to SVN and GitHub allows us to collaborate in a quite nice way:

You've no permissions to commit stuff to our repository, but you can fork it. That means GitHub creates a copy of our repository separately just for you. You can manage that repository as you like and you can continue development as you like. Finally it's it's possible for you to create pull requests, which allow us to pull your changes back to our main repository.

That's how collaboration works. Additionally you need to commit your changes locally and synchronize your GitHub repository afterwards.

So finally Git does a lot branching and merging stuff, something we SVN guys hated, but Git does it in a nice way, so there's nearly no problem moving to that different philosophy smile
