  git clone git://git.openembedded.net/org.openembedded.dev

* checkout a different branch:

  git pull

OpenEmbedded Git repository

The Git repository is now the official source repository. Monotone is no longer used.

See GitPhraseBook for instructions on how to use the OE git repo.

Monotone to Git Conversion Issues

Why Git

Why did we switch from monotone to git:

  • better support for branching and merging (this is where git shines)
  • much faster
  • much larger user base -- many people doing OE work are already using git for kernel work
