This repo uses Git Submodules to bring in dependent components.

Note: If you download the ZIP file provided by GitHub UI, you will not get the contents of the submodules. (The ZIP file is also not a valid git repository)

To clone using HTTPS:

git clone --recurse-submodules

Using SSH:

git clone --recurse-submodules

If you have downloaded the repo without using the --recurse-submodules argument, you need to run:

git submodule update --init --recursive

Important branches to know

master --> Development is done continuously on this branch
release --> Fully tested released source code
release-candidate --> Preview of upcoming release
feature/* --> Alpha/beta of an upcoming feature
