        • Three builds being run:
          1. 4.1 (Helios-based) - IBM is the only group using this
          2. Indigo - PTP 5.0.x builds - "ptp-release" is the build name - build must manually be started - aggregation build (ptp+photran) is "ptp-master-release"
          3. Juno - PTP 6.0 builds - "ptp-nightly" is the build name - gets kicked off on file change - aggregation build (ptp+photran) is "ptp-master-nightly"

        • Three git concepts that Greg said he found useful
          • local copy of repository - push and pull syncs with remote copy (pull = fetch + merge)
          • commits are just pointers to the changes; merge replays commits on top of your repo. How to resolve conflictts? Add to index then commit
          • changes are staged locally - propagation from local > staged > remote
