No you misunderstand.
You cannot edit the gambas repository directly, when you do git
automatically creates a branch (on you own fork), not the gambas one.
It does everything you suggest (and i previously stated) automatically.

It actually works quite well and so much easier and better than doing it
the hard way.
It is good.
