Noob questions to git


#1

If i have a B2G repo and make a change to one line in one file and then start the build.
Does it automaticaly run on that changed line?


(dattaz) #2

yes except if you do a git pull or repo sync


#3

next noob question is:

I made a change to my fork of “novski/b2g-manifest” and wold like to test the fetch of code befor i make a pullrequest to “mozilla-b2g/b2g-manifest” how can i make the command ./config fairphone2 download my version?

GITREPO and BRANCH env variables can be overriden at runtime:

https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/B2G/blob/master/config.sh#L33

so GITREPO=git://gitub.com/novski/b2g-manifest.git BRANCH=xxx ./config.sh
fairphone2

Ok i think there is a confusion by what state i do that…
I do:

git clone git://github.com/mozilla-b2g/B2G.git && cd B2G

then in config.sh change

GITREPO=${GITREPO:-“git://github.com/novski/b2g-manifest”}
BRANCH=${BRANCH:-master}

so by the time i change the

GITREPO=${GITREPO:-“git://github.com/novski/b2g-manifest”}

it will not refresh the ./repo/manifest folder by doing next a

./config.sh fairphone2

My git repo: git://github.com/novski/b2g-manifest

will not be recognized befor i fetch the code defined in the manifest…

Is there a git command to update the “./repo” part after cloning the mozilla-b2g git?


#6

Now i understand. I forked the B2G repo and changed it there…
