Pirates of Caribbean : Elizabeth’ s Speech

The Brethren will still be looking here to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead.
And what will they see?
Frightened bilge rats aboard a derelict ship? No.

By the sweat of our brows,
and the strength of our backs,
and the courage of our hearts.

Hoist the colors….
Hoist the colors!!

My Experiences with GIT

This article is also available in the following file :  git

1. Starting with git
Steps to add files to repository:
1. Create your repository on git.
2. Create your pair of SSH keys and add them to the git website.
3. To add your files :
(a) git add LDAP.tar.gz
(b) git commit -m ’Adding Source Code’ -m follows a custom message.
(c) git push origin master
These steps are well documented at :
The reader is adviced to refer the above links for this section.

2. Deleting items from your repository
To delete items from your repository:

git rm LDAP.tar.gz

git commit -m ’Removing Source Code’ -m follows a custom message.

git push origin master

Figure 1 shows screenshot of my repository which has the file LDAP.tar.gz. Figure 2 shows the steps to delete the file from the remote repository.
3. Updating your repository
Many a times it happens that your local copy and your remote repository are not in sync with each other. In that case, I got an error which said,

Merge the remote changes before pushing again.
See the ’Note about fast-forwards’ section of ’git push –help’ for details.

The solution for this is :

git merge origin/master
