Branch renaming in the linux-2.6 git repo on sopc.et.ntust.edu.tw

Hi all 

 

The naming of the branches in our linux kernel git repository 

(git://sopc.et.ntust.edu.tw/git/linux-2.6.git) caused some confusion - 

especially along newbies - in the past. 

 

Walter Goossens suggested to rename our main development branch 

(unstable-nios2mmu) to something more convenient in [1]. 

 

[1] http://sopc.et.ntust.edu.tw/pipermail/nios2-dev/2011-september/005444.html 

 

I'm going to rename the unstable-nios2mmu branch to 'nios2' on sopc and 

my mirror at gitorious.org/linux-nios2/linux-nios2 if nobody has 

any objections. 

 

I'll also announce this in the forum. Additionally did a short writeup 

of the way we handle development for nios2 linux now and a short 

description of what every branch is about. I added this information to 

the Altera Wiki at [2]. Please enhance/expand if you see fit.

Hi Tobias, 

 

Being new to uCLinux (but not Linux in general) I have to say this renaming will help me a lot. I was getting quite confused by the various names :confused:. Could you kindly post a summary of the git commands that you would suggest in order to setup for the correct branch of uClinux-dist? 

 

Many thanks 

Vern
