Note: Unless you are a developer with ssh access (with permissions) you should instead read the article "Development using git"

Personal settings

Start by telling your git who you are and some other useful information ('user.name' will show up in http://git.alpinelinux.org when you commit your changes).

 git config --global user.name "Your Full Name"
 git config --global user.email "your@email.address"

Git Clone

Some examples:

 git clone ssh://username@git.alpinelinux.org/gitroot  (This would fetch all available git projects) 
 git clone ssh://username@git.alpinelinux.org/gitroot/acf-core.git   (Fetch a single project) 
 git clone ssh://username@git.alpinelinux.org/gitroot/pingu.git   (Fetch a single project)

Check http://git.alpinelinux.org/ to see what alternatives you have.
You might not have permissions to clone all existing projects.

Git Tag

Create an annotated tag.

 git tag -a tagname -m'commit message (e.g release 1.x)'
 git push && git push --tags

Create new project

Create your own dir that you want to become your new acf-mystuff project.
Now initiate git.

cd acf-mystuff
git init

Create your files and add/commit them to your git-project

git add ./
git commit

Note: You can add/modify/commit as much as you want before uploading it to git.alpinelinux.org

git clone --bare acf-mystuff acf-mystuff.git
scp -r acf-mystuff.git user@dev.alpinelinux.org:

Notify a user with root access to install the git repository
