git over ssh


Transferring a git repository around seems to get interesting.

Yesterday I wanted to copy a local git project to USB; copying all the ordinary files worked but many files in the git repo are read-only so they wouldn't copy.  

I found git fetch <path/to/local/git.repo> worked - kind of.  I still had a lot of historical stuff on my USB copy that hadn't been removed.  So I checked all those items could be removed and removed part of the problem.  However, one file was still showing up

April CPR 2015 HTML::FormFu::DBIx::Model

This month's assigment is HTML::FormFu::DBIx::Model.
After my experience in March, where the cpan and github repos had differences I decided to clone the github repository and download and build the module via the interactive command cpan.
The github fork and clone went without a hitch but I found trouble with the cpan plan fairly early on.

I set debug all to see if I could understand what was happening. The results are quite verbose and I'm a complete beginner at this but here are extracts from the redirected output file.

Here's my get command starting off:

My first Pull request

So I sorted out my first pull request today.

Things I learned:

  • qr is a neat way of quoting a regexp for later use .... 
  • github doesn't let you upload new branches - I had to create the branch on the forked repo on git hub. pull that, re-commit the changes, push that.  I know for next time.
  • set push.default - I'm using current - it works!
  • how to create a pull request.

So there you go ... the changes were trivial, simply deleting a line using version 0.77.




CPAN Pull Request Challenge 2015- Day 1

Neil Bowers announced the CPAN Pull Request Challenge for 2015 on 20th November 2014.  The idea behind this Challenge is to encourage people to contribute to Perl and to make contributing to Perl less scary and more fun.

Figuring it could be:

Creating a brush in Gimp 2.8

The user manual entry for creating a new brush using the GIMP is somewhat succinct so I experimented with it.
