I have subscribed to the git mailing list, got a clone of the repository and so should be able to do commits and see the result. I did in fact change one thing and committed it, but presumably that is just in my local copy. I guess I need to “push” the changes to get them into the “central” repository – if I understand it all correctly. I hesitate because the Kitware document is not clear on how to go about with bug fixes. And I am still trying to understand the git command ;).
The change I made (to solve the immediate problem regarding SVG files that are replotted) consists of some three lines of code, so nothng major. Still, I would like confirmation that I am going about it the right way:
- I cloned the repository from SF
- I made my changes and did a (local) commit
- I did not do anything wrt tags or branches, so my changes are likely to be in the main branch
- If I push these changes, then they should end up in the main branch – if my understanding is correct
So, can I simply push this?
