git branch for new stuffs

Post by MelKor »

I have searched and found few threads about git and branching in spring forum, but I don't know how can I make a new branch in dev line from a stable release.

I follow the indication in wiki page for getting and compile from source + git (http://springrts.com/wiki/Build_from_source) and i get a nice crash of the game, so I can assume based in the git model (from here http://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.ph ... ch#p461448 ) that I'm getting the source from dev branch, and i can't find the way to get it from a stable release, so please help me to do that.

thanks in advance

have a look at these commands:

get a list of the tags (on the spring repo, we have only the versions as tags):

Code: Select all

git tag
get a list of the local and remote branches:

Code: Select all

git branch -a
switch to the source of the last release:

Code: Select all

git checkout 0.82.6.1
switch to the source of the last release:

Code: Select all

git checkout 0.82.6.1
at this point, you can make a new branch, based on the stable release, like described in the post you linked to:

Code: Select all

git branch 0.82.6.1-coolNewStuff
git checkout 0.82.6.1-coolNewStuff
for more git related questions, you may also ask in the dev channel on the lobby. there is nearly always someone around that is willing to help with that.
