How to Upload a Repo
- Import source code of repository.
- If importing from a SCM repo:
- Subversion/Mercurial: use the GitHub Importer. (See step 2 for the repo naming convention).
- CVS: for single-module repos, use
git cvsimport. For multi-module repos, use
- If importing from a zip/tar/etc.:
- Extract archive. Delete ALL compiled files.
- Move all source files into a "src" directory if they aren't already. Leave README/TODO/LICENSE/etc. in top directory.
- Move documentation files, if any, to their own subfolder of the parent directory.
- Create the GitHub repo.
- Naming convention: Remove spaces & separators; change captialization. (e.g. "Haiku on a Stick" → "HaikuOnAStick", "Open Sum-IT" → "OpenSumIt")
- Push code to GitHub.
- Create the description for the repo. The summary probably can be extracted from the first sentence of the README. (Look at some already-uploaded repos for examples.)
- Add the URL you got the software from to the README, if you got it from a website (e.g. "Original URL: http://...").
- Disable the Wiki. (We can re-enable it later if we ever want it, and we aren't going to use it now.)
- Add the software to the "Software" page of this site.
