Forking GitHub Repos and Contributing to Open Source Projects

Rob Sewell takes us through the process of contributing to an open source project:

– Fork the repository into your own GitHub

– Clone the repository to your local machine

– Create a new branch for your changes

– Make some changes and commit them with useful messages

– Push the changes to your repository

– Create a Pull Request from your repository back to the original one

You will need to have git.exe available which you can download and install from if required

For bonus points, we learn that Shane O’Neill doesn’t use the Oxford comma.
