Update Git commands and URLs
# Source Code
We use [Git](git) for managing the IPFire source code and the source code of all our other smaller projects.
You can browse the source code on [](https://git.ipfire.org/) or alternatively [](https://cgit.ipfire.org/).
It is freely downloadable via the Git protocol, HTTP or SSH. The URLs to the repositories can be found on their respective summary pages.
## Repositories
IPFire uses two repositories for two major versions.
### IPFire 2.x
#### master
The master branch holds the code that is currently shipped.
`git clone git://git.ipfire.org/ipfire-2.x.git`
git clone git://git.ipfire.org/ipfire-2.x.git
#### next
The next branch is the development branch that will eventually become the next Core Update.
`git clone git://git.ipfire.org/ipfire-2.x.git`
git clone git://git.ipfire.org/ipfire-2.x.git
`git checkout -b next -t origin/next`
git checkout -b next -t origin/next
### IPFire 3.x
`git clone git://git.ipfire.org/ipfire-3.x.git`
git clone git://git.ipfire.org/ipfire-3.x.git
#### User Repositories
With IPFire-3.x we introduce a new workflow for development. From now on, each developer has got his own sandbox that is published on*git.ipfire.org*. In this sandbox one can do whatever one imagines.
When a new feature is developed it will get finished in this sandbox or branch while it can be shared by many developers through the magic of git. After that, it is merged to the master repository.
If you have got an own developer account you should connect the master repository together with you own:
git clone ssh://user@git.ipfire.org/pub/git/ipfire-3.x.git
git clone ssh://user@people.ipfire.org/pub/git/ipfire-3.x.git
## Could also be checked out via the git protocol
cd ipfire-3.x/
git remote add user ssh://user@git.ipfire.org/pub/git/people/user/ipfire-3.x.git
git remote add user ssh://user@people.ipfire.org/pub/git/people/user/ipfire-3.x.git
## GitHub Mirror
The most common repositories are also mirrored on GitHub at [](https://github.com/ipfire)
**Please note** we do not do GitHub pull requests.
