Where to store differences between dev and production branch in git?

I have a project I manage out of a git repository.

We deploy the code using fabric. When we’re ready to […]

Any Git shortcuts for the current branch and the branch it tracks?

I would like to do something like this: $ git fetch origin $ git rebase -i origin/a_very_very_very_long_branch_name Where, my local branch name is as same as a_very_very_very_long_branch_name.

Git workflow for different versions of a framework

We have the following setup: Three apps which are similar to each other with the common code extracted into a framework. Each app is managed in their own git repository and includes the framework as a git submodule. The problem is that the apps are now developed in parallel with new features being added to […]

“Not currently on any branch” after doing a commit

I did a checkout to an earlier commit: git checkout 12345 Then back to the last commit: git checkout 56789 And then continued committing and I’m: Not currently on any branch.
