Sorry I didn't follow conversion to github and I am not really familiar with 
new workflow.

So as GeanyPrj maintainer how do I commit patch to mainline? Should my github user be 
added to "main" geany-plugins repository or I need to create new fork with 
related changes and create pull request to main geany-plugins from time to time?

I think Frank asked for Github usernames in another thread for this.

This github stuff is a bit confusing for me.

There was some discussion about doing something like this:

1. Go to github.com/geany/geany-plugins and click "Fork"
2. Go to github.com/you/geany-plugins and get the clone URL
3. From terminal:
  $ git clone <address from github in step 2>
  $ cd geany-plugins/geanyprj
  $ git checkout -b your-topic-branch
  <hack, commit, hack, commit, ...>
4. git push origin your-topic-branch
5. Go to github.com/you/geany-plugins/tree/your-topic-branch and click the "Pull Request" button.

Or we might end up just working from the main repository ourselves like we did with SVN, unless someone can step up to review all the pull requests.

Frank did you decide on a "best practice" yet?

Hi there,

This is a new patch for Geanyprj. It doesn't implement any functionality
or bug fix. It's only a cosmetic patch to comply to Geany's coding

Since geany-plugins has moved on GitHub, is there an equivalent to the
"tracker->patches" functionality of SourceForge for sending patches ?


In Github land it's called a "pull request".  While logged in to Github,
navigate to the geany-plugins repository and click the "fork" button.
It will make a copy of the repository under your account.  Create a new
branch, hack away and when it's ready, click the "Pull request" button
on Github and it will notify committers that you have something ready in
your branch to be merged.

Of course like you did here on the ML is fine too, but it's easier to
loose track of if it's not persistent somewhere.
