    It would be good to clarify your answer a bit... Do you mean an official manual for github, or the official install of git, or the official place to push git projects to?

As mentioned in a comment above, there is no "official github for ubuntu". There is an account of the Ubuntu project with a small handful of repositories. But next to all Ubuntu packages are managed on Canonical's own platform, Launchpad. By default, Launchpad uses Bazaar for code hosting and version control, but Git is supported as well.


If you're talking about a manual, try here: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2

That's where I learned git. Very complete: has more information than you will use in your lifetime.

And once you've read through all 574 pages, if you still have questions, don't come to me, because I won't know what to say. ;)

  • When I look up "ubuntu desktop x64" on github I expect to find the source code of the OS like the kernel and gui as well as a wiki to build each... even if it was just a .get with submodules. Jul 3, 2016 at 5:09
