Back in April we moved our public repository from SVN to Github, where we also host all of our other code repositories. While there are many technical advantages to Git versus SVN, the biggest reason of all for the move for us it to enable easier code contributions to the project. While we’ve had several pull requests already, Git and Github are both new technologies to many and there is a bit of a learning curve in getting up and running with them.
If you want to learn about how to use Git and how to contribute to SugarCRM using Github, come to this month’s SugarCRM Community Webinar on June 14th at 1500 GMT where I’ll walk everyone thru using Git and contributing your code fixes to us via Github. We’ll also have an exciting announcement at the meeting as well, so you’ll definitely want to make sure you are there.
