  1. ngIRCd - Next Generation IRC Server
  2. -- GIT.txt --
  3. The source code of ngIRCd is maintained using git, the stupid content
  4. tracker.
  5. I. Getting the source code
  6. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  7. To access the source tree anonymously, run:
  8. $ git clone git://
  9. Thereby a new folder "ngircd" will be created containing all the individual
  10. source files.
  11. The newly created directory ("ngircd") is the "working directory", all
  12. git commands will be executed from within this directory in the future.
  13. Please note: When checking out a fresh copy of ngIRCd using git, the
  14. configure script doesn't exist; you have to run the shell script
  15. (which is included in the source tree) to generate it. This requires you to
  16. have GNU automake and GNU autoconf installed on your system.
  17. To update the git tree:
  18. $ git pull
  19. This retrieves all changes and merges them into the current branch.
  20. II. Contributing
