I forked a project to make changes to multiple source files. I did all my editing using the web page interface. As I made changes to the code, I’d “commit” (save?) the work and come back to it later.
When it was all ready I did a pull request, and got a request back saying I should combine all my commits into one.
How do I select all the changes I made to source file xyz.cpp so it looks like just one set of changes, instead of “showing my work”?
Secondly, what did I do wrong in the first place? When I saved my changes each time, I wasn’t expecting that to be all kept separate, and show up as dozens of small changes in the pull request.
If I have to use git on a linux system, how do I get my changes there and how does git know what to connect to?
Thanks for anay help you can provide.
