[wix-devs] update: Github - preparing to work on 4932

In Github Desktop in the branch pulldown I switched from 4592_RmuAddProcessesByName to 'develop' and told it to 'Update', and watching the folder tree in Explorer it added a bunch of files that did not exist in 3.9 (which last updated).  I then successfully built a debug build (with warnings in the log related to version conflicts - which mostly seemed to relate to votive).  My batch file that launches the build calls the v 12.0 version of MSBuild and some of the version conflicts seem to expect the v 4.0 version of MSBuild.  (So let me know if I am doing it wrong.)  The resulting binaries are versioned 3.10.  etc, so it looks like I do have a development environment to play with.

I get the impression from my notes that I should use Github Desktop to create a new branch off of 'develop', but my notes also talk about creating a Fork and I am not sure which to do, and if I should do something to the old 4592 branch.

I am sorry that I am so dense when it comes to using github.  I used the Windows client for github some time back (too long ago) to submit a pull request for 4592.  I kept notes on the steps for using github while working on 4592, but I think the repository was moved from codeplex and so I am not sure what the next step should be to start working on 4932.  When I open github it asks if I want to update, sync, or delete 4592_RmuAddProcessesByName.  Should I delete it? And if so do I delete just the local one or "both"?

Then I think I need to create a fork to get started again.  Thanks for any advice.
