Collaboration on GitHub

This page gives guidelines for distributed Django development.


1. Install git

If you want to learn more about git, see the git webpage or the git cheat sheet for a quick overview.


As of January 2009, the latest git release is 1.6.1. As there are many improvements compared with older releases (notably, a single executable), it is advisable to use this version instead of the ones provided in the Ubuntu release repositories. There is a personal package archive that provides git 1.6.1 backports to all Ubuntu releases since Hardy.

Installation instructions:

  1. add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list (substituting UBUNTU_RELEASE_NAME with the Ubuntu release you are using):
  2. install git:
    $ apt-get update
    $ apt-get install git
  3. verify that the correct version was installed:
    $ git --version
    git version 1.6.1

2. Register an account on GitHub

Go to and follow the instructions.
