Bye, bye GitHub!

You all probably already noticed that GitHub was recently bought by Microsoft. See here https://blog.github.com/2018-06-04-github-microsoft if you have not.

After a brief orientation period the Hubzilla community decided to move the sourcecode to an independent, freedom-loving GitLab instance at Framasofts https://framagit.org/

To get the latest and greatest Hubzilla code, you need to point your installation to the new sourcecode location. This is pretty simple:

cd into your Hubzilla root directory and execute this command:
git remote set-url origin https://framagit.org/hubzilla/core.git

For the addons: cd into your Hubzilla addons directory (probably extend/addon/hzaddons) and execute this command:
git remote set-url origin https://framagit.org/hubzilla/addons.git

Please do the same for the widget https://framagit.org/hubzilla/widgets.git and theme https://framagit.org/hubzilla/themes.git repos if you already added those from GitHub.

The GitHub repos will not receive any updates anymore but will stay intact for a short transition period.
Issues and bugreports should be reported and discussed at https://framagit.org/hubzilla/core/issues for core and https://framagit.org/hubzilla/addons/issues for addon issues.

Thanks for the help. But I give up and start from scratch :-(

Yes, I had the addon.git in the root config. Fixed that. Tried all suggestions: stash and drop, checkout -- ., every form of pull.

A "pull" results in a list of some files that "would be overwrittten" - core files that I never touched (knowingly).
A "status" still lists all (but the addons folder) as "modified" and suggests to pull, add or checkout - but none of those change anything or fail.

Sigh, I'm used to TFS at work and git is a total mystery to me
  
The good thing: everything worked out as described on the actual hub.ax9.eu. Thank you again.

The git chaos as described above happened on a local dev copy - will start that one from scratch
  
Maybe someone more experienced than me can contribute to this discussion? https://github.com/git-federation/gitpub/issues/7
