     1= Branch Overview =
     3There are three types of branches in the QtWebKit Git repository:
     5 * <username>/* : This is where developers publish their changes. You can have as many so-called topic branches as you like. For example holger/crash-fix would be a name for such a topic branch.
     6 * qtwebkit: This is the main development branch. Currently only Lars and Simon can update this branch. If you feel comfortable enough with Git we can add you.
     7 * svn/* such as svn/master or svn/Safari-3-branch. The branches prefixed with svn/ are read-only
     8   and are mirrored from the WebKit Subversion repository.
     10= Howto =
     12== Getting Started ==
     14 * Clone your git repository from {{{git+ssh://}}}
     15 * After that you will have one local branch called {{{qtwebkit}}}.
     17== Step-by-step instructions ==
     19(Note: Substitute {{{simon/crash-fix}}} accordingly)
     21 * Create a local topic branch: {{{git checkout -b simon/crash-fix origin/qtwebkit}}}
     22 * After that you will be on a local {{{simon/crash-fix}}} branch.
     23 * Now you can hack away and commit as many changes as you want.
     24 * To publish your changes for the first time run the following command: {{{git push origin simon/crash-fix}}}
     25 * You can continue hacking and if you want to publish more changes you can just run {{{git push}}}
     26 * If you want to merge the latest changes from the {{{qtwebkit}}} branch run this:
     28git fetch
     29git merge origin/qtwebkit
     31 * When you are happy with your changes and they have been merged into the {{{qtwebkit}}} branch you can delete your branch on the public repository using {{{git push origin :simon/crash-fix}}}
     32 * After deleting the branch on the public repository you can also delete it locally:
     33   * Switch to a different branch, such as {{{qtwebkit}}}: {{{git checkout qtwebkit}}}
     34   * Delete the branch: {{{git branch -D simon/crash-fix}}}
     36== Switching from the Trolltech Labs repository ==
     38All you have to do is to adjust your {{{origin}}}. Edit the {{{.git/config}}} file and look for the {{{[remote "origin"]}}} section. Change the the {{{url = ...}}} line to read {{{url = git+ssh://}}}
