Inside the repository, we'll keep an index of all the students in the course and metadata about them (you!).
- Load up the git cheatsheet at Zack
Rusin's blog and keep it nearby.
- Work through this git tutorial if
you don't have any experience with git.
- Fork the
repository (link to github help on
- Clone a local copy.
- Add a file in the
/scripts/people folder titled
$YOUR_IRC_NICK.yaml. Perhaps obviously, it is
a YAML file. You can use the
rjbpop.yaml file as an example.
BE WARNED: Your .yaml file must match the format *exactly* (meaning it is case and whitespace sensitive.)
CRUFTY: There is a
people.yaml file in that directory. It is a legacy hangover from older code. Do not bother editing it. It will actually make merges more difficult.
- Once you've confirmed your .yaml file matches exactly, commit and push your changes to github, and issue a pull request.
- Once the patch is accepted upstream and pushed to production, this
should add your blog feed to the Participants page.)
