Title

Handle an OpenMRS Ticket

Overview

Use git and Eclipse to handle an OpenMRS ticket.

Prerequisites

A working github account, Eclipse configured for OpenMRS

Learning Objectives After successfully completing this activity, the learner should be able to:
  • fork, clone, checkout, and commit code using git and github.
  • follow the process defined by OpenMRS for tickets.
Process Skills Practiced


Video

Watch the OpenMRS University video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbbDvMVgRWo entitled, “OpenMRS University: Contributing Code.”

Handle a Ticket

The following steps are followed in the video:

  1. Claim the ticket
  2. Fork the appropriate repository on github.
    • The project name is in the upper-left corner of the ticket next to the ticket id.
  3. Clone the repository to your local machine.
    git clone <repository url>
    • The repository url should point to the forked copy on your github account.
  4. Set the upstream repository
    git remote add upstream <repository url>
    • The repository url should point to the original copy of the project on github.
    • You must be in the project directory for this command to succeed.
  5. Fetch all the current branches of the project.
    git fetch –all
    • FIXME I don’t quite understand why this is necessary. What did we have after the clone?
  6. Pull all changes from the upstream master
    git pull –rebase upstream master
    • FIXME In the video and on my sample ticket, there were no changes. I don’t understand how there could be after the fetch (much less after the clone).
  7. Create a branch to work in
    git checkout -b <branch name>
    • Use the ticket identifier as the branch name.
  8. Import the project into Eclipse
    • Use the “Browse..” button to point at the directory containing the project.
  9. Tell Eclipse that the project uses git.
    • Select all the projects, and then right click. Select “Team” and then “Share Project...” The default opens are correct.
    • Do not use “Share Projects” (plural). This is for adding a new form of sharing.
  10. Handle the issue described in the ticket...
  11. Add your changes to the staging area of your local repository.
    • for an interactive add
    git add -i
    • to add specific files
    git add <filename>
  12. Commit your changes to your local repository
    git commit -m "<ticket id>: <commit message>"
  13. Push the changes in your branch back to the origin on github.
    git push origin <branch id>
  14. Change to the branch on github, and make a pull request
    • Include the URL of the ticket.
    • Be sure to check the “Commits” and “Files Changed” tabs to be sure you are sending the correct changes.
  15. Request a code review on the ticket page
    • Include the URL of the pull request in the comment for the code review.
  16. Wait. Someone from OpenMRS will respond to the pull request.
