Push changes to remote git tree
You may want to git-push your changes to a remote git tree so that your could make your changes publicly available, and/or you could provide a maintainer with a pull request.
Add a remote git repo
git remote add <name of repo> <link to the tree>
git remote add lucid ssh://zinc.canonical.com/srv/kernel.ubuntu.com/git/manjo/ubuntu-lucid.git
push your changes to remote git repo
git push <name of repo> <local branch>
git push lucid lp554433
Modifying a branch after a push
At times corrections need to be made after the changes are pushed to the repo. Here are the steps to push these changes to the repo under the same branch.
- make your code changes, corrections or modifications
- modify your git commit message to reflect the changes you have made
git commit --amend
push your changes to the remote repo. Note the + sign prefix to local branch name.
git push <name of repo> +<local branch>
git push lucid +lp554433
