    cd $(brew --prefix)/Library/Taps/caskroom/homebrew-cask
    git remote -v
  • creating a new branch for his project

    git branches
    git remote add $github_user https://github.com/$github_user/homebrew-cask
    git checkout -b $project
  • finding my information and feeding to homebrew

    cd /tmp
    wget https://download.owncloud.com/desktop/stable/ownCloud-
    sha256sum ownCloud-
    sha256sum ownCloud- | pbcopy
    brew cask edit owncloud
  • testing with homebrew:

    brew cask install $project
    brew cask audit $project  --download

    git status
    git commit -am"upgrading owncloud"
    git push $github_user $project
  • confirm the pull request

    open https://github.com/$github_user/homebrew-cask
  • come back to the master branch

    git checkout master
  • in the meanwhile, the change has been merged and got approveded. Owncloud is updated!

  • moreover, I do not like the default pattern of ignored files and I edit it globally:

    sudo vim /Applications/owncloud.app/Contents/Resources/sync-exclude.lst
