Tracking SYSLINUX development with GIT
The following link points to the status page of the official development tree:
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. 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.
