Getting the Source
The sources for this project are in a git repository. Git is a distributed
revision control tool originally created by Linus Torvalds to track the Linux
kernel tree. With git, there is generally no central repository that everyone
commits their changes to. Instead, collaboration is done by "pulling" changes
from the repositories of other contributors.
When you check out the sources, you will get the entire history along with
the latest version. You do not need any special permissions to clone a
repository and start making changes.
To retrieve the ceo sources, clone the public repository:
git clone /users/git/public/pyceo.git
Making Changes
Now that you have your own repository, you can start making changes. You
may can add, update, or delete files as necessary and then commit these
changes to your local repository. Then you can make these changes available
to others. Read the documentation to learn more about basic git usage.
Git Resources
For a tutorial, see [1] generally and [2] if you are familiar with CVS.
The manpages for git are also invaluable, use `man git-foo` to view them,
or look online at [3].
Finally, if you're interested in how git works internally, see [4] for
documentation of the "core" commands, and [5] for documentation of the
repository format.
Setting up a Public Repository
If you make changes, you will probably want to share them with the other
contributors. The only thing other people need to fetch your changes into
their own repository is the location of your repository and read access to
it. With that they can use `git pull` to fetch and merge your changes.
If you want to make changes but not publish them immediately after each
commit, create a second "public" repository and use "git push" when you
are ready to make your changes public. Refer to the Internet for more
