Developing Patches; An Introduction to Stacked Git - Myron Stowe, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Git ('git') is a distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) system that is used by the Linux kernel community and numerous other open source projects. StGit (Stacked Git; 'stg') is a Python application
providing similar functionality to Quilt (i.e. pushing/popping patches to/from a stack) on top of Git. With StGit, one can easily develop and manage patch series that consist of hundreds of individual patches.

In this presentation Myron provides an introduction to Stacked Git by demonstrating its use and capabilities. The presentation will be more developer oriented - a "live demonstration" and not a slick slide show - in which Myron recreates a past kernel development effort using 'stg' that produced a four patch series.
