RTEMS GIT Repository


RTEMS project is currently in the process of migrating its CVS repositories to GIT. A git repository has already been setup and is currently available for testing at The conversion plan for this undergoing migration is in the CVS to GIT wiki page. The git repository is available read-only to the public at large. Only a small subset of people have write permission, but everyone is welcome to commit a patch with proper licensing.

Why git?

Git is a DVCS...

Using the GIT Repository

Most of the community will use the RTEMS GIT Repository anonymously and have read-only access. Using this way you can check out any code revision of RTEMS that is in our repository. The following examples will use the RTEMS main repository, but they are also valid for the other modules.

First we need to obtain our own local copy of the RTEMS git repository:

 git clone git:// rtems

This command will create a folder named rtems in the current directory. This folder will contain all the rtems git history and the current HEAD revision checked out. Since all the history is available, we can checkout any release of RTEMS. Major RTEMS releases are available as separate branches in the repo. To see all available remote branches issue the following command:

 git branch -r

git checkout git remote git fetch git merge
