Git pull question - commit or stash how to?
 

So I installed version 2.5.1+ and it's working great via git.

Now I want to update it by entering the command "git pull" and got a warning/error.


[user@myserver ~]$ cd /var/www/html/moodle

Thoughts?

Re: Git pull question - commit or stash how to?
 

git commit -a

Is this right?

or

I have to add all the modified files before I commit anything.

git add -A or git add --all

After that, I can use commit all the added files

    git commit

with this, I have to add the message for this commit.

git coa "my changes are upgrade to build 20130802 blah, blah....."

Am I in the right track?

I think I figured it out now ...

git commit -a -m 'merge branch first time'

then git pull

Well, before merging or committing anything, it would have been a good idea to find out what changed.

git status

git diff

would have shown you that. If the changes were trivial, you could have removed then (git checkout badges/lib/backpacklib.php) instead of committing them.

Anyway, you got your problem solved.

Thank you Tim. Yes, I read about git status which tells me or gives me a hint on the stage they are in and then what to do next.

By the way, where in Moodle Tracker can we get (or maybe there is no such thing) a list (preferably a download of a spreadsheet or delimited file of some sort) where we could test all the functionality after an upgrade so we could check these areas off before we put them into production?

Does moodle.org have their own checklist of all the functionality & areas they wish to test before they release it to the public? This is what I am look for so we could the same thing on our end?

Thanks

What an excellent set of questions:

There is a digested list of what has changed in each release in the release notes: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moodle_2.5_release_notes

That always contains a link to the full list of changes in the tracker: https://tracker.moodle.org/secure/IssueNavigator!executeAdvanced.jspa?jqlQuery=project+%3D+mdl+AND+resolution+%3D+fixed+AND+fixVersion+in+%28%222.5%22%29+ORDER+BY+priority+DESC&runQuery=true&clear=true but unless you are very patient, a list of 718 issues is pretty useless. You can download those issues in various forms using the 'Views' menu in the top right.

Moodle provides demo.moodle.net (running the latest stable version, currently 2.5.1+) and qa.moodle.net (running the latest development version, 2.6 dev or master) where you can always try out the latest functionality.

Before each major release, there is a big effort to get people to help with testing Moodle. See http://docs.moodle.org/dev/QA_testing. That uses this list of testcases: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDLQA-1. There is also a lot of automated testing, so the list of many test-cases was actually shorter for 2.5 than it was for 2.4.
