Local development instance: Changes not accepted

Hi everybody,

today I set up a local Mastodon development instance. I used this guide and ended up with a working local instance in development mode (favicon red, default login enabled).

As my first action on modifying Mastodon I tried to adapt the source code repo url (to be compliant to GPL license):

def repository

I saved the changes and started all Mastodon services via foreman:

foreman start

unfortunately the change wasn’t accepted. The sidebar link to Mastodon’s GitHub repo still points at the official repo. What am I missing?

(I’ve also tried running bundle exec rails server and ./bin/webpack-dev-server - no success.)
