How to modify the site contents

The following are instructions on how to edit the site. This site is hosted on GitHub pages.

You can use the editor on GitHub to maintain and preview the content for your website in Markdown files. You can also use git clone to create a local clone to edit.

Whenever you commit to this repository, GitHub Pages will run Jekyll to rebuild the pages in your site, from the content in your Markdown files.

If you don’t have direct edit rights, you can still do that, but it will create a fork and pull request. Someone else can review the pull request, and then merge it if it’s appropriate.

Most of the text is in Markdown format in .md files; below is a brief explanation of Markdown if you’re not familiar with it.
