git: rename local branch failed

I don’t know why my attempt of renaming local branch failed. I basically cloned the project, then I also have a submodule within the project, and I downloaded the submodule code as well. However, when I use git branch within the submodule, I have: * (no branch) master The code looks like I’m on another […]

Jenkins and multiple git branches?

I’m working on a Jenkins job and i need it to build two branches in the same repository. How can i do this?

What's the easiest way to merge all but one change from a branch in Git?

It’s kind of like I want to cherry pick all commits from the branch except for one, but I’d like to do that in one command… • We cut a release, which creates a branch • The release changes the version number in all our poms, on the branch to one number, and on master […]

Changing branches in git results in changed files

When I am switching between branches in git, I am seeing that files are changed even though no updates have been made. This has just started happening recently. $ git status # On branch dev nothing to commit (working directory clean) $ git checkout master Switched to branch ‘master’ $ git status # On branch […]

Connecting git branch to GitHub fork

I came to git via terminal, not GitHub and I am wondering how I make a connection between the two. From a checkout I have, I created a branch in terminal by running this command: git checkout -b newbranchname From my understanding, GitHub calls this “forking”. How do I connect the branch on my box […]

GIT: How to unambiguously reference current HEAD when having a branch called HEAD?

Even though “HEAD” is definitely a poor choice for the name of a Git branch, it is still a valid branch name. If you happen to have branch named “HEAD”, is there a way how to unambiguously refer to the actual HEAD symbolic reference? The branch can be referenced as refs/heads/HEAD, but what about the […]

“git pull –rebase” leads to “Cannot rebase onto multiple branches”

So, my work environment has precisely one branch with a remote companion on Github. I’m trying to do git pull –rebase in order to prevent git push from creating merge commit messages that don’t provide new information to others working on this project and just gum up the works. But when I try that, it […]

git move a branch's start forward in the tree

Okay I almost have this rebase thing figured out. I can feel a breakthrough coming – here is the tipping point: How do I do a rebase to go from: A – – B – – C – – D – – E (HEAD) | \ – – F – – G (branch1) To: A […]

(git): How to bring specific commit from upstream branch?

I have this (git repo): A–B–C–D ->master \–E ->dev And I want to bring only commit D to branch dev (D doesn’t depend on C), so that: A–B–C–D ->master \–E–D’ ->dev But D’ shouldn’t get added to master after a merge: A–B–C–D–E’ ->master \–E–D’/ ->dev This is because I want to bring only a file […]

Should I merge master into a branch, and then merge back into master?

I have the following branches: master test1, which was created from master test2, which was also created from master. I’ve done multiple commits on the test1 branch, and also, since I created the test1 branch, I’ve created multiple commits on master. There are also commits on test2, which I intend to merge back into master […]
