While the project is small adrelanos thinks it is best not to make a too difficult policy.
Adrelanos's progress of work.
- Not calling it unstable, because the changes will most likely never make it unstable but it is just not tested if it still builds.
- Branching model, project readme, information, gpg...
- last released and recommended Whonix version
- ready to include hotfixes
- does currently not exist, since only one adding code
- candidate for next Whonix version
must always build
- currently restructuring
- we can make an always building development branch as soon as someone else commits code
perhaps 0.5.x etc. as release branches
feature branches when it makes sense
Releases will be tagged and gpg signed.
Will be named like: adretemp1 or 96adretemp
Can get deleted from time to time.
Link to Source Code
subscribe to code changes
Git clone github.
A git specific work flow could be:

Check every now and then https://github.com/Whonix/Whonix/commits/master.
Github Commits Mailing List
(Stay hosted on sourceforge.net. Barely anyone is signed up and it is quite high traffic.)
If you prefer Twitter, use the Secondary Twitter Account for Source Code Commit Notification.

Put folder under Git Version Control
Update the package lists.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git
Unless you want to use git for pushing changes to remotes which you probably won't in a testing VM you can use the following git config without using any real names or pseudonyms. (These are the git suggested defaults. )
git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
Enable Git Version Control for Folder
Go to the folder you want to set under git version control.
Initialize git version control.
Add all files to git version control.
git add -A
Commit all files to git. 
git commit -a -m .
Do changes such as changing KDE settings.
See what changed.
Optional. Just sharing. Like it or not.
- Bash completion can complete git commands and branch names.
- Colorful git prompt.
