How the repos on this site work

“Can’t I just browse the source code?”

I might get around to implementing that later. For now, please just use a git client like Magit on Emacs or Working Copy on iOS, or just plain git in a shell.

“But I prefer web-based forges, like GitHub!”

I’m not too fond of them myself, but many of them can import off-site repos just fine.

For example, here are instructions for how to do that on GitHub.

Here is how to do it on sourcehut.

“How do I send patches?”

Either git send-email or git request-pull is fine.

Here’s a tutorial for git send-email.

“But I prefer hg/fossil/jujutsu etc!”

I hear they can import or export to git just fine.

If you’re using CVS or some other non–git-compatible VCS, you’re just gonna have to have a .git in parallell with what ever you’re doing in that other thing and commit there too.

“Why do you even like git?”

I got burned pretty badly by darcs and its “theory of patches”. Git’s model as a content-addressable file system suits me just fine.♥
