Volunteer Marcin Cieslak (saper) is doing the great service of leading a
Git and Gerrit tutorial on May 8th 19:00 UTC. It will be 1-1.5 hours.

If you intend to come, please fill out this poll so saper knows how many
people are coming and what they already know.


Time conversion:

To participate, you'll need to:

* get developer access for Git/Gerrit/Wikimedia Labs
* install a SIP client ("Blink and CSipSimple for Android are
recommended and tested (with HD audio); I'll provide SIP dial-in")
* install vncviewer
* ensure you can ssh from a terminal

Marcin will cover:


    setting up Git
    submitting a patch
    commenting on a patch in Gerrit
    merging a patch in Gerrit
    enough Git internals not to get lost


    local branch, making, working & pushing
    remote branch & git-review to that remote branch


    cherrypick changes between branches
    amending (rebase vs multiple commit)
    squashing work from a branch into a commit and pushing it
    resolve merge conflicts

Thanks, Marcin!
