git is a version-control system. It was first developed for the Linux and LibreOffice uses it too.
Right. So it's a (better) replacement for things like SVN/CVS/... (The gist of these tools is that you version a set of files and can easily see the history of each file or go back to previous versions.) You can download git from here: http://git-scm.com/
Here's an overview of all the repos libreoffice consists of: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice This page explains how to use git for getting the latest source and building it: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Native_Build In the section "Getting the source" you'd need to replace git://anongit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core with git://anongit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/website
Thanks Alex. Maggie, please ask if any of that sounds too much like technobabble. Also, don't let the command line shock you. :) There are graphical UI's available, like e.g. http://sourceforge.net/projects/gitextensions/ Hope this helps a bit, Astron. -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to email@example.com Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/design/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
