Comment: Typo in git alias


  • Download git - if not installed:
    • There is an issue where your git installation may be overridden by the MacOS (Xcode) veneer. To overcome this:
      • Don't bother trying to mv /usr/bin/git /usr/bin/git/system - as the Mac security does not permit this (even as root)
      • Just confirm your git installation is working and alias it:
      • See below:
