On the other hand, maybe I am confused. I was assuming that CVS was still
the primary vehicle for managing glibc, and the git repository was just
shadowing it. But I see that if I "git pull" and "cvs update" I get more
recent changes in git than I do in CVS.
So if I make my changes in git, should I ask someone to pull my tree (like
how Linux is managed) or do I push my changes directly to the master git
repository? I haven't used the latter workflow before, so if someone has
some notes on what the right thing to do is, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
