SCM - Lab - Q 7 - Path in the hint


In DevOps pre-requisite under module SCM - Lab - Q7 there I believe there is problem in hint provided .

Q: In your cloned repository i.e /home/thor/remoterepo create a file index.html with content This is a sample file . Track the new file, commit the changes and finally push the same to remote repo in master branch.


info_outline Hint

Use below mentioned commands:

cd /home/thor

Create the index.html file and add the content as asked in the question.

git add index.html

git commit -m 'your commit message'

git push origin master


In my view the hint is stating " cd /home/thor which is not correct
It should be `cd /home/thor/remoterepo then only it will work .

I have added output form my working as below.
