2. Infrastructure setup: beginner
Prepare concept registry data storage with GitHub as repository hosting provider. Intended for registry managers without technical knowledge.
If you don’t have a GitHub account yet, navigate to github.com and sign up (it’s free).
1. Initializing the repository
On Github, open Glossarist concept system template repository, and use the template to create a new repository (see “Use this template” button).
After filling in the basic settings, click “Create repository from template”.
You will be redirected to your new repository page.
Take note of your repository URL
in the form of
In our example, a glossary repository called
2. Filling in register metadata & roles
After creating the repository from template, edit register metadata and roles.
You can open those files for editing from the Github page of your repository.
register.yaml and see comments inside the file.
This file contains the name and description for your register,
and list of supported languages as 3-letter ISO 639-2 T language codes.
roles.yaml and see comments inside the file.
This file specifies which Github username has which roles.
As a person who maintains the infrastructure, you are a registry manager.
As a person who coordinates the vocabulary and review change requests, you are a register manager.
3. Setting up contributor access
(Skip this if you are the only contributor for now. You can revisit this part later when collaborators join you.)
|Every collaborator would be required to have a Github account of their own.|
Invite Github collaborators to the repository you’ve created.
Navigate to your your repository’s access settings page on Github and use the button that will be labeled either “Invite collaborator” or “Invite teams or people”.
Each collaborator you add must have at least “Write” role specified on Github.
Let your collaborators know the repository URL necessary for desktop application setup. The URL will be in the form of
https://github.com/<username or organization>/<repository name>. They will enter it when setting up the app.
