You have to checkout then the boinc-server branch, once there, just made
the changes needed, git add/rm, and then `git commit', this just will
commit the changes locally, to made it public do a 
`git push origin [remote branch]', if the branch does not exists this will create it at
origin, you can take a look of the remote branches using `git branch -r'

Indeed, you can create more branches if you like, or you can just push
where the branch you are working.
