Tracking SYSLINUX development with GIT

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

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

To clone the repository for your own development, install the git-core and cogito software packages, and run:

   mkdir working-directory
   cd working-directory
   cg-clone -s http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/boot/syslinux/syslinux.git

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

   cg-update origin

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.

For more information about Cogito, a user-friendly wrapper around git developed by Petr Baudis, see the documentation.
