Using the batman git repositories¶
If you want to find out why we also have a git repository now, please read B.A.T.M.A.N. goes mainline.
To retrieve the latest changes you can pull from the read-only http frontend.
git clone https://git.open-mesh.org/batman-adv.git batman-adv
There is also a repository for kernel integration. You are about to download 2GB of sources - that may take a while!
git clone https://git.open-mesh.org/linux-merge.git -b batadv/net-next
The main git repository is divided into several branches to make working easier.
The main branch will have all upcoming changes. Bugfixes are merged from stable to main.
The stable only gathers bug fixes for the last release.
Create branch associated with the remote-tracking branch after cloning the repository
git switch -c stable --track origin/stable
Cherry-picking a commit from main branch
git switch stable git cherry-pick $SHA1
The linux-merge repository is a clone of netdev's net-next tree. With the help of some git voodoo the main branch is merged with this branch in the folder: net/batman-adv/. If you wish to merge the latest main branch changes into the linux branch you need to pull the newest changes in main from the batman-adv.git repository.
