Uploading your changes
First, you need to start a topic branch. This 'branch' holds the changes you make to the files on your computer that you will ultimately send to the CyanogenMod servers for review. Create your topic branch:
repo start <branch name> <project path>
- Note: This starts a new branch called '<branch name>' in the '<project path>' project. Replace <project path> with the path of your target repository instead.
Now, you can cd to the project (directory) that contains the file(s) you want to edit:
Now you can make your changes. Make sure you do not edit any files before you run repo start, or your changes will happen on a different branch and will not be tracked correctly.
After you make your changes, you can commit them just as you would normally:
git add <file you edited>
ctop(Same as moving to top/root of tree using cd)
Now you can upload your changes to the CyanogenMod server:
repo upload <project path>
That's it! Your change will be reviewed and may be accepted or rejected.
