GIT quick notes

I want to work on a new plug-in inside of gst-plugins-bad. But also I want to expose my development to a personal GIT repository, so my friends could fetch my changes.

As Linus Torvalds explained once keeping a nice linear regression set of patches above an upstream development implies the use of git-rebase, nevertheless that also implies that I will have to force my pushes and my friends will also have trouble keeping their repositories in sync with mine.

So this is a kind of compromise between be nice with the people who pull your changes, or ease your daily work.

  1. Tell them to:
    git fetch jaquez
    git reset –hard jaquez/plugin

    git pull is overrated :)
