Extensions build against Slicer trunk

The following instruction describes how to contribute extension description file updates for an extension being built against slicer trunk.

  • Update the master branch of both your local clone and your online ExtensionsIndex fork
git remote add upstream git://github.com/Slicer/ExtensionsIndex   # Add reference to the authoritative ExtensionsIndex
git fetch upstream                                                # Fetch change of the authoritative ExtensionsIndex
git checkout master                                               # Checkout master
git reset --hard upstream/master                                  # Reset your local master branch using the authoritative master 
git push origin master                                            # Update the master branch of your online fork
  • Create a branch named update-<YourExtensionName> in the clone of your forked ExtensionsIndex
git checkout -b update-<YourExtensionName>

git reset --hard upstream/4.2.0                                   # Reset your local 4.2.0 branch using the authoritative 4.2.0 
git push origin 4.2.0                                             # Update the 4.2.0 branch of your online fork
  • Create a branch named update-<YourExtensionName>-4.2.0 in the clone of your forked ExtensionsIndex
git checkout -b update-<YourExtensionName>-4.2.0
