Forking how-to with descriptions
View fork_you.markdown


essentially like cloning on github's servers - but that's inconsequential, mostly.. also: forks are not automatically up to date (relative to repo you forked)! your fork creates a snapshot of the original repo at the time you fork it.

  • fork on github

  • creates a clone on github servers

  • copy url of that clone

  • git clone [url]

    • clones the content of your fork to your local machine
