GitHub Standard Fork & Pull Request Workflow

Whether you're trying to give back to the open source community or collaborating on your own projects, knowing how to properly fork and generate pull requests is essential. Unfortunately, it's quite easy to make mistakes or not know what you should do when you're initially learning the process. I know that I certainly had considerable initial trouble with it, and I found a lot of the information on GitHub and around the internet to be rather piecemeal and incomplete - part of the process described here, another there, common hangups in a different place, and so on.

In an attempt to coallate this information for myself and others, this short tutorial is what I've found to be fairly standard procedure for creating a fork, doing your work, issuing a pull request, and merging that pull request back into the original project.

Creating a Fork

Just head over to the GitHub page and click the "Fork" button. It's just that simple. Once you've done that, you can use your favorite git client to clone your repo or j


How do I clone a GitHub wiki?

Any GitHub wiki can be cloned by appending wiki.git to the repo url, so the clone url for the repo https://myorg/myrepo/ is: (for ssh) or (for https).

You make edits, and commit and push your changes, like any normal repo.

How do I add images to a wiki page?

You need to clone the wiki repo and edit it on your system.

Reading the Portable Executable (PE) header in C#
My job consists of writing fully custom applications for groups of people. The time pressure of these projects is quite high, so generally people start using the application while I’m still writing it, which means I write it modularly and add features as I go along. I also fix bugs as they are discovered. My clients are 2 tiered where expert users get a new build first, they test if for a while, and if they think it’s acceptable they then pass it on to others.
This method of distribution is quite ad-hoc so when a client rings me up and asks me to view their screen to look at something, it’s useful to know what build they are running. To facillitate this I print the link date in the main Window Title so I instantly have an idea about how old the version is that I am looking at. This date is calculated at run time. To do this requires reading in the Portable Executable (PE) header from th
