Hi,

what is the best way to handle the following problem.

Till now only the core-team and H1 Wink do commits to the german langpack.

What is the best way to incorporate strings from other users who have installed the gitsystem too. Mergerequest?

Thanks in advance

Heinz

Hi Heinz,

You could use the merge request feature on gitorious, or you could also use email.

For example, you can create patches like this:

  git format-patch HEAD~2

(to get the last two commits as patches)

and then email these patches to the maintainer:

  git send-email *.patch

Finally the maintainer can apply the patches to their branch:

  git am *.patch

But of course, if you trust these people, you could also just add them as committers to the German repo :)

Cheers,

Francois
