I am the developper of vimix : GitHub - brunoherbelin/vimix: Live Video Mixer
I made and tested locally a flatpak for vimix
I would like to submit it to flathub
However, I do not understand the instructions on App Submission · flathub/flathub Wiki · GitHub
- Fork the Flathub repository on GitHub with “Copy the master branch only” unchecked.
OK this is done in github (had to guess)
- Clone the fork:
git clone --branch=new-pr firstname.lastname@example.org:your_github_username/flathub.git
What is “new-pr” ?: should it be replaced by the app name? Should it be the full flatpak name?
What is email@example.com ? : Should it be replaced by my email for account to github?
I am stuck here, but already anticipate that I don’t understand the following :
- Create a new branch with your app’s name:
git checkout -b your_app_name
How does my app name is checked checkout ? is this not the name of the repo?
The command git checkout does not create a branch, or does it?
- Open a pull request against the
new-prbranch on Github
Where? which github page?
So, in short, all this might be really obvious to you but for an old guy like me all these unsaid and shared knowledge in the geeks community make it difficult to follow for newbie. An example guide with step by step instructions would be helpful : I could not find anything like that. Sorry if I missed the obvious… (at least this means the obvious cannot be found easily, which is already something to improve!! )
