Collection of useful information about git

ToDo for everyone (working on analysis code)

  1. create an account on GitHub https://github.com
  2. map your GitHub account with your CERN account https://cmsgit.web.cern.ch/cmsgit/cmsgit
  3. tell your analysis group about your account
  4. read the FAQs (see below)

Central FAQ


Quick Overview




Cloning the CMSSW git repository to T3 is very slow

This is because cloning does a lot of very small IO operations (almost worst case for the NFS); try to clone onto /scratch and then copy the entire directory to your home.

Technical Points

What is the space limit for repositories on GitHub?

Roughly 1 GB; see https://help.github.com/articles/what-is-my-disk-quota. If you have that much code it's maybe advantageous to split up into multiple repositories.

Do we need a central place to have a backuped copy of the our analysis code repositories?
