Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I was facing an issue with git while working with android source and asked this question. It was closed as off topic within a short time. Now I have found the solution and can't even answer my own question so that it helps some one else; as it is closed!
(I added the answer as a comment for now)

In any case, don't post an answer as a comment just because the question is closed. That's just like people that post comments as answers because they don't have enough rep -- post stuff where it belongs. If you can't, there's a reason – Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 20:02
    
When the question is closed and you want to share the solution, there is no other option available to you except for the comments section(and meta, as I have realized now) – NimsDotNet Jun 10 '11 at 20:16
    
Git off topic on stackoverflow ? This question has been well covered by MichaelT. see: meta.programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/6311/… – xaa Feb 2 at 15:59

Reopened. I think git falls squarely in the "software tools commonly used by programmers" category mentioned in the FAQ.

And it's not exactly the first time a git question has been asked – Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 20:01
    
Thanks Bill! @Michael I was surprised when the question was closed so soon as off topic. I think the people closed it was not familiar with git and repo. We should probably have a rule to say that you must have at-least answered a question with a similar tag before you can vote to close a question. – NimsDotNet Jun 10 '11 at 20:08
