Simply install git and run the following command:
git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/liquidwar6.git

If not (that is, if you checked out anonymously using
git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/liquidwar6.git for instance, you
can still submit patches. Follow these steps:
git format-patch -p originthis command will generate
.patchfiles, one for each of you commits, which you can send by email. They can be easily integrated in the main source tree by using
git apply <file.patch>.
Note that you can need to run
git format-patch -p master (with

origin) it not using a fresh checkout. Also consider adding the
--stdout switch, eg
git format-patch -p master --stdout > my-changes.patch if you’re not using a fresh checkout.
