to install the development version of GNU social.
To get it, use the git version control tool
<http://git-scm.com/> like so:
git clone git@gitorious.org:social/mainline.git
Using it is a mixed bag. On the positive side, it
usually includes the latest security and bug fix
patches. On the downside, it may also include
changes that require admin intervention (like
running a script or even raw SQL!) that may not be
documented yet. It may be a good idea to test this
version before installing it on your production
machines.
In the current phase of development it is probably
recommended to use git as a means to stay up to date
with the source code. You can choose between these
branches:
- 1.1.x "stable", few updates, well tested code
- master "testing", more updates, usually working well
- nightly "unstable", most updates, not always working
To keep it up-to-date, use 'git pull'. Watch for
