Module Development

Applying a Patch to a Module

Sprout Video

This video goes through the process of finding a patch from the issue queue, and then applying it to a contributed module. After testing the patch and confirming that it fixes the bug, we then walk through the process of reporting back that the patch has been reviewed and tested by the community and is ready to be applied to the module's main branch. This video will show you how to clone a project, but it assumes that you already have git installed and are familiar with the basics of using git.

Here's more information on how to set up your command line to show the git branch release context.
