For developers - kernel drivers
- 1) be very very very carefull when you use '--force' for 'git push', you can broke whole repository, you should notify other developers on alsa-devel mailing list that you will do this change for 'master' branch
- 2) valid 'Signed-off-by:' line must be in the commit text
Rules for alsa-kernel.git
- 1) subject (first commit text line) must start with '[ALSA] ' or 'ALSA: ' or '[sound] ' or 'sound: '
Rules for alsa-kprivate.git
No rules. Just do not overwrite branches created by someone else.
Note that 'master' branch in alsa-kernel.git is synced with alsa-kmirror.git 'master' branch automatically. So if you add a patch to alsa-kernel.git, it will be merged to alsa-kmirror.git (if no problem occurs) when you initiate 'git push' to the ALSA server. It's really required to see messages from the pre-receive script when something goes wrong. The script is trying to suggest what's going wrong and try to show you a problematic code (diff).
Pushing to 'alsa-kmirror.git' should be only done if:
- a) you fixing a sync problem
- b) you are modifying a file which is out of sync (scripts directory or so)
In all other cases, only alsa-kernel.git repository should be used.
The pre-receive script uses all four commit identifiers Author + AuthorDate + Commit + CommitDate to pair commits between alsa-kernel.git and alsa-kmirror.git. Use this information, if you like to add some commits manually to alsa-kmirror.git tree.
- PRE-RECEIVE repositories does not match, please, fix it
- The alsa-kmirror.git#mastter and alsa-kernel.git#master sources does not match. You have to do manual changes in alsa-kmirror.git repository to sync trees. A diff between alsa-kmirror.git and alsa-kernel.git is printed to stderr, so you can analyze it and do appropriate steps.
- PRE-RECEIVE Patch failed - is it already merged?
- Appearently, you're trying to apply a patch which cannot be applied cleanly to alsa-kmirror.git#master. One reason might be that the patch is already applied, but the pre-receive script does not know about it. You may add commiter and commitdate to alsa-kmirror/scripts/git-ok-commits file to skip problematic commit (but only if you really verify, that this commit is already in the alsa-kmirror tree).

To show all branches (includes remote ones):
git branch -a
To make a remote branch local:
git checkout -b for-linus origin/for-linus git checkout -b linux-2.6 origin/linux-2.6
Update and rebase using Linus's 2.6 kernel tree
Add remote URL:
git remote add linux-2.6 git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
Checkout linux-2.6 branch:
git checkout linux-2.6
Pull Linus's 2.6 changes:
git pull linux-2.6 master
Rebase our main ALSA development master branch with linux-2.6:
git rebase linux-2.6 master
Push branch changes to ALSA GIT repository
git push --tags origin master:refs/heads/master git push --tags origin linux-2.6:refs/heads/linux-2.6 git push --tags origin for-linus:refs/heads/for-linus
Note: Especially after 'git rebase' the repository on server is not consistent with local repository (remote ref is not ancestor of the local ref for master branch), so you have to use --force parameter for 'git push' command. Note that this might be dangerous - please, ask Jaroslav Kysela < perex at perex . cz > if you can do this for branch 'master'.
- this branch is for main development, managed by Jaroslav Kysela, it is rebased before ALSA releases
- the contents is synced to alsa-kmirror.git
- this branch is for linux next testing tree (originaly maintaned by Andrew Morton), rebased
- this branch is for mainstream tree (for Linus Torvalds), just temporary branch
- this is official linux 2.6 mainstream tree
- patches for stable 2.6 kernels
Private tags are not allowed. Only tags identifying ALSA version (alsa-kmirror.git and alsa-driver.git) or official linux kernel version (alsa-kernel.git) are allowed.

This section is for developers without write access to ALSA git. I.e. who will clone repos and send in patches
clone the repository
git clone git://git.alsa-project.org/alsa-driver.git alsa-driver git clone git://git.alsa-project.org/alsa-kmirror.git alsa-kmirror
Set your email address correctly otherwise commits get spurious email address for Author and Commiter
git-config --add user.email firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure it knows how to send email (for patches)
git-config --add sendemail.smtpserver smtp.domain.com
in case you want to roll back
do your work
edit, compile, test, sweat
If it didn't work out and you want to get back to the old tree
git-reset --hard save
Want to get patch against latest, so rebase
git-rebase origin/master git-diff remotes/origin/master
Then do this to generate the patchset
git-format-patch -s -n -p --subject-prefix="PATCH - my module" remotes/origin/master
check the patches
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/scripts/checkpatch.pl --no-tree *.patch
sending the patches
git-send-email --from=me --email@example.com --firstname.lastname@example.org
get up to date
For both alsa-kmirror and alsa-driver
Sometimes you can just make and things will be fine. However, when there have been changes to the build system etc, its best to do a make clean; ./gitcompile to get the tree properly up to date.
