How to create a feature branch and reset to origin/master in a single operation?

I often start my journey with a small fix on the master branch that eventually appear more complex than initially thought. So I easily fall in this situation: * Damned I have more stuff to check (HEAD -> master) * Forgot to fix this as well… * Oops, fixed that too * Fixed this * […]

I’m not happy with the title but I think I overcomplicated my explanation and it is as simple as above in the end.

Hence requiring someone to manually determine the first commit in the branch is not an option. Note that anything relying on reflog is […]

How to pull a branch deletion in git?

If someone has deleted the remote branch, is there any way I can pull from the same repository, and get my local branch deleted as well? It would be handy not to have all developers do the manual removal of a branch when we’re done with a feature.
