Making your own copy (fork) of scikit-image

You need to do this only once. The instructions here are very similar to the instructions at http://help.github.com/forking/ — please see that page for more detail. We’re repeating some of it here just to give the specifics for the scikit-image project, and to suggest some default names.

Set up and configure a github account

If you don’t have a github account, go to the github page, and make one.

You then need to configure your account to allow write access — see the Generating SSH keys help on github help.

Create your own forked copy of scikit-image

  1. Log into your github account.

  2. Go to the scikit-image github home at scikit-image github.

  3. Click on the fork button:

    Now, after a short pause and some ‘Hardcore forking action’, you should find yourself at the home page for your own forked copy of scikit-image.
