Merge fixes in GitHub with 3.3

So there are some bugs that I found that are fixed in the version that is in the GitHub Repository. If I installed 3.3 from the site and an official release how do I go about importing changes from the GitHub to fix the bugs I am having? Should I just replace the files that fixed the bug?

    I wouldn't copy individual files into another version. If you want to run the github version, you should install the whole thing by checking out or downloading master from Github and using that in its entirety.

    Take a backup first (database and config), get master from github, put your backed-up config into the new installation and see if that works for you.

    Don't forget to hit utility/update afterward.

  • Is the utility/update so that it updates the database to conform with this version?

    Like if I wanted to migrate from our version to the GitHub version I would just upload the new files and run this update? Obviously from a test server first
