1. Well, it's probably my mistake, I tried to follow our Git branching
and merging section. It seems I made a mistake so if you've any idea,
share it and I'll fix it.
I got confused because I couldn't tell which directory had the feature
stuff I needed. Then I discovered one was version 0.1 and the other
was version 0.2. When you do a git branch, you can just overwrite the
content in the working directory. You're really working with an
"alternate reality" and you don't need to worry about destroying the
existing branch content.
2. Probably yes, I enabled the needful modules and I put only
into a feature. A few modules are in default status. I mean, just
enabled and there is no changes.
3. Not necessarily because I wanted to test Strongarm, Diff and
Features Extras modules. Does it work, how it works and can I export
When I turned on the feature, it showed the two new blocks as
overridden. I tried several times to select and revert the blocks, so
they would be set according to the feature. But that didn't work
properly. I'm not sure if it's something I did or not. I have both
the 960 and Fedora themes installed and enabled as needed.
