How to patch using git?


#1

Is there any simple documentation on how to apply patch from github to my current ojs instalation ?
this page https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/ojs_download/ojs-patches/ seems not very detail and not obviously explain technically to patch on ojs context. thanks

I am using windows 10

Are you looking for a specific patch, or are you looking to upgrade your software to a new release?

If you want to upgrade OJS to a newer release, we recommend the full package upgrade:

The git tool is useful for developers who are managing specific features and bugfixes. It can be useful for quickly deploying these changes, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you are just interested in an upgrade.

The patch list on the website which you reference is outdated, and I’m going to recommend that we discontinue its use entirely. (@asmecher ?)

Hi @ctgraham,

Agreed, that list wasn’t maintained. I’ve removed it.
