Getting VLC source code via Git

git clone git://

You can also browse the source via gitweb.

Prepare a local branch to work on

git branch master

List the local branch

You can now list your local branch by doing

git branch

which should ouput

* master


Now you can start to work on your tree. As soon as you feel you've reached a step in developement you can commit localy your work by

git commit -a


git commit <specific files>

Keeping your local working branch in sync

git fetch origin
git rebase origin

voilà! Your commit will be re-applied on top of the origin (the svn trunk).

Creating a secondary local branch

If you want to work on a specific project that could require a branch of the trunk

git branch mywork

to actually use it

git checkout mywork

Then do some commit on it

git checkout master

to go back to your normal branch
