How do I commit changes?

Asked by M.D. Walters

Hi, I use GitHub to push my changes to Launchpad, which just seems like something I should not be doing. So, my only solution was to retain both accounts, and make the GitHub account my main account.

To help answer your question better, can you tell us what are the goals you are trying to achieve? Mirroring GitHub repositories to Launchpad is a supported feature.

Hi, Guruprasad, my goals are to try and make changes on Launchpad, but, there seems to be no visible button to commit changes to Launchpad 😔. But, since Git is my confort zone, I can try and use Visual Studio to commit changes.

When using a distributed version control system like git, you commit changes locally and push them to remote repositories hosted on services like GitHub, GitLab, Launchpad etc.

If you are referring to the feature in GitHub that allows editing files in the web interface itself and creating commits there, Launchpad does not provide that feature. So you will have to use the typical git workflow of making the changes and creating commits locally before pushing them to hosted git repositories.

We have documentation about using git with Launchpad at Please check that out.
