Re: OCA: transition from Launchpad to Github
my bad, yesterday I did a mistake and copy-pasted the old method I had when
using git-bzr for the initial checkout, sorry for that. In fact using the
standard git remote helper (which I absolutely recommend), doing the
initial synchronization is much simpler and there is no need to create git
forks as git will properly have the correct branch layout automatically
(unlike with git-bzr):
I corrected the doc:
