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