I don't think it is ok to edit the official Gambas Git repo and add a
branch there, even if Gitlab provides the opportunity to do that. But
I'm not Benoît ... it's his playground.

The better way IMO is to fork Gambas, then create a feature branch in
the fork, add the changes and then create a merge request in the
official Gambas repo which points to your feature branch.

As soon as the changes were taken over you can delete the feature branch
in your fork. AFAICS Gitlab can do that for you if you have set it that way.

Also write commit messages in the way Gambas needs it:


Alles Gute
