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.
