For a Gaia patch there are several ways that you can handle applying a patch.

1) Creating a new branch I recommend that you create a branch locally first for the changes that you are about to make. You can do this by:

  • git checkout -b <branch name>
  • ex git checkout -b Bug908513

2) you can pull the branch locally from a developer's git hub repo via :

3) to see the branches available locally:

  • git branch

4) to switch branches:

  • git checkout <branch name>
  • ex git checkout master

5) to delete a no longer used branch:

  • git branch -D <branch name>
  • ex. git branch -D bug_905831
