A closing round bracket is probably missing here:

On a remote machine (e.g., some_machine:

Here, round brackets are probably either redundant or the period should come after the closing round bracket:

(The exact package name has varied between Linux distributions, so we are not giving exact package names. You may wind up installing more than you need, but the packages are not large.)

    Hi,

    Here are minor typos for

    13. GIT Fundamentals

    Introduction to GIT

    Commit It

    $ git commit -all --amend

    Probably should be
    $ git commit --all --amend

    Get the Linux Kernel

    This is more of a suggestion.

    By executing

    $ git clone --depth 1 -b master \ https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git linux/

    the following error occurres

    Cloning into 'linux'...
    fatal: protocol ' https' is not supported

    By omitting the backslash before the repo URL, the command successfully clones the repo.

    • -depth create a shallow clone with a specified number of commits

    Probably should be

    • --depth create a shallow clone with a specified number of commits

    Treeish

    (Which in the git documentation is spelled as "tree-ish" but that hardly matters much.)

    This is more of a proposal.

    The link from the last sentence refers to a page that is in plain HTML, which is difficult to read (especially on a large monitor). The page below is more structured and the content is basically the same.

    Git - gitrevisions Documentation

    Fork? Clone?

    To make a local on the same filesystem without using hard links:

    Probably should be

    To make a local copy on the same filesystem without using hard links:

    Lab 13.1. Clone an Upstream Software Repository and Make Local Changes

    Solution 13.1

    But the last one will work regardless of which textbfbranch you currently have checked out.

    Probably should be

    But the last one will work regardless of which branch you currently have checked out.
