Run the command git checkout to change branches to the one that should be updated.
Run the command git pull to copy any changes from the github repository to your local repository.
Add or update the needed files in the local repository using your computer’s explorer windows.
Back in the Git Shell, run the command git status to show which files have changed, for example [develop +0 ~1 -0]. The numbers and branch may be different. This indicates that files have been changed / added / deleted.
Run the command git add . (You need to type the period too; this will add all the modified files to the commit.)
The numbers on your command line, for example +0 ~1 -0, should now be a different color.
Run the command git commit –m “[message about your commit]”.
A message will display explaining which files were committed and what type of changes were made (i.e., add / change / delete.)
Run the command git push to copy all the changed files from the local repository to your github repository.
After all steps have been completed, your git shell will look similar to this:
Go to your repository on http://github.umn.edu and verify that the changes are there. Your page should show the time of the latest commit.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting that your changes be deployed.
