Test Git is a
distributed version-control system for tracking changes in source
code. It has been designed to handle everything from small to very
large projects with speed and efficiency and is widely used in science
and industry. Git is open source and avavailable for free.
For a tutorial on using Git in research, we recommend the Software
Carpentry lesson on Version Control with Git.
For further details on Git, we refer to the Pro Git book that is
available for free on the Git website.
The EIC GitHub Organization is available for the whole EICUG. For membership, please send your GitHub username to firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage you to share your software and documentation on https://github.com/eic. Please follow our guidelines in doing so:
- Please use a unique name for your repository so that we can easily identify projects. We will, e.g., have various Geant4 related projects and each of these projects should have a name that is distinguishable from the others (and not Geant4).
- Please add at least one topic to your repository.
- Please give a clear description of your repository, e.g., ”Mary Johnson (Lab)’s DVCS MC” or “William’s Smith (University) DIS analysis”.
