This page explains how you can use TortoiseGit under Microsoft Windows to contribute code to Drupal.org.
Other pages in this handbook explain how to install and configure TortoiseGit, and the differences between git and tradional versioning systems like SVN.
- You have requested and received git access.
- You have created a project.
- You have registered your public key with your drupal.org account.

3. Create your project files in the repository directory or copy existing project files there.
4. Once you have at least one file in the repository directory, commit it. You do this as follows.
- Right click the file(s).
