Ok, here it is, the full history of pd-l2ork:


You can clone it, then edit .git/config so that the origin points to:
 git at github.com:pd-l2ork/pd.git

Then force push it to overwrite what is up there now:
  git push -f origin master

I saw your git-commit script, I highly recommend avoiding that approach, indeed avoiding "git commit -am" all together.  I find it saves a lot of time in the long run by only committing files manually, then checking the commit with "git diff" before committing.

Try "git gui" instead, it makes it really easy to select which files to commit, in fact you can even easily commit sections of a file while keeping some parts of the file uncommitted. gitk is an invaluable history browser tool (apt-get install gitk git-gui).

Git is a powerful tool, but it is not easy to learn.  I recommend reading up on it whenever you have a chance.  It'll pay for itself in a big way later on in terms of increased productivity.  Here are two free books I learned from:




"Free software means you control what your computer does. Non-free software means someone else controls that, and to some extent controls you." - Richard M. Stallman
