Resetting a Submodule

Posted in:

I use submodules a lot to pull in the various GitHub hosted FOSS projects that are incorporated into KosmicTask. My approach in using them is:

Converge Divergent Git Repositories

Posted in:

In GitHub we clone a repository, make changes and issue pull requests. Often the pull request is not fully merged into the upstream repository. There can be several reasons for this:

  • The upstream maintainer cherry picks some commits and rejects others.
  • The upstream maintainer manually updates their repository with selected commits.

The solution is simply to select Glyph from the view pop=up menu in the tool bar. The Glyph Catalog will be displayed allowing the glyphs to be displayed for a particular font. The problematic font can be selected and the required glyph inserted.
