=== Installing Dependencies
To build Git from source, you need to have a handful of dependencies installed
on your system. For a hint of what's needed, you can take a look at
`INSTALL`, paying close attention to the section about Git's dependencies on
external programs and libraries. That document mentions a way to "test-drive"
our freshly built Git without installing; that's the method we'll be using in
this tutorial.
Make sure that your environment has everything you need by building your brand
new clone of Git from the above step:
$ make
NOTE: The Git build is parallelizable. `-j#` is not included above but you can
use it as you prefer, here and elsewhere.

`DEVELOPER` flag; if there's some reason it doesn't work for you, you can turn
it off, but it's a good idea to mention the problem to the mailing list.

Great, now your new command builds happily on its own. But nobody invokes it.

you the rest of the options afterwards, untouched.
Now that you have a usage hint, you can teach Git how to show it in the general
command list shown by `git help git` or `git help -a`, which is generated from
`command-list.txt`. Find the line for 'git-pull' so you can add your 'git-psuh'
line above it in alphabetical order. Now, we can add some attributes about the
command which impacts where it shows up in the aforementioned help commands. The
top of `command-list.txt` shares some information about what each attribute
means; in those help pages, the commands are sorted according to these
attributes. `git psuh` is user-facing, or porcelain - so we will mark it as
"mainporcelain". For "mainporcelain" commands, the comments at the top of
`command-list.txt` indicate we can also optionally add an attribute from another
list; since `git psuh` shows some information about the user's workspace but
doesn't modify anything, let's mark it as "info". Make sure to keep your
attributes in the same style as the rest of `command-list.txt` using spaces to
align and delineate them:
git-prune-packed plumbingmanipulators
git-psuh mainporcelain info
git-pull mainporcelain remote
git-push mainporcelain remote
