    1414=== Preparing to create patch file ===
     15 * Before making any commits to the Haiku repository (local even), be sure to [http://www.haiku-os.org/guides/building/get-source-git#configure_env configure the git environment] on your local system! Failure to configure git properly before a commit will result in incorrect naming in your commit and public humiliation on the mailing list.
    1516 * Create patches from within the ''HAIKU_TOP'' directory. This is the directory that contains ''configure'' and typically is the ''haiku/'' or ''buildtools/'' branch.
    1617        * {{{ git status }}} will display which files are modified, added, or deleted. Use `git diff` to inspect your changes.
