Tracking SYSLINUX development with GIT

The following link points to the status page of the official development tree:

   http://git.kernel.org/?p=boot/syslinux/syslinux.git;a=summary 

To clone the repository for your own development, install the git software package, and run:

   git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/boot/syslinux/syslinux.git working-directory

You can then make changes and "git commit" them to your own repository, thus maintaining a parallel branch of development. Furthermore, you can use the command "git pull" to update your tree with upstream changes:

   git pull

The "gitk" tool will show you a visual history of the repository.

For more information about GIT, see an overview, the tutorial, or the man pages.


Browse the SYSLINUX source code

You can browse the SYSLINUX source code through the GIT webinterface at http://git.kernel.org/?p=boot/syslinux/syslinux.git


SYSLINUX internals

A series of pages describing the SYSLINUX internal architecture and functionality are being written. They are in an initial stage of development, and are organized under Category:SYSLINUX_Internals.

Any contributions are welcome!
