How to correct existing assignment templates?

  1. Students have already accepted their invitation and cloned the assignment template repository.
  2. A mistake in the assignment template is discovered
  3. A fix is pushed to the assignment template repository.

but students cannot pull the correction in their already cloned repository.

Help!

Hi @pautasso,

since the repositories are cloned and not forked, I’m afraid, this isn’t possible with a simple pull. You can however add your changes as pull requests to each of the students’ repositories. Depending on how many you have, you can either do this manually or use some sort of script. Have a look at Updating assignments after creation?, it contains some suggestions with scripts written by the community that should get you started.

Regards,
Wolfgang
