Warning: push.default is unset; its implicit value is changing in Git 2.0

I’ve been using Git for a while now and have recently downloaded an update only to find this warning message come up when I try to push. warning: push.default is unset; its implicit value is changing in Git 2.0 from ‘matching’ to ‘simple’.

Why do I need to explicitly push a new branch?

I am new in git and I am practicing. I created a local branch but I saw that when I did git push my branch was not uploaded to the repository. I had to actually do: git push -u origin –all. Why is this? Isn’t a branch a new change to be pushed by default? […]

Git workflow and rebase vs merge questions

I’ve been using Git now for a couple of months on a project with one other developer. I have several years of experience with SVN, so I guess I bring a lot of baggage to the relationship. I have heard that Git is excellent for branching and merging, and so far, I just don’t see […]

Vendor Branches in Git

A Git project has within it a second project whose content is being worked on independently. Submodules cannot be used for the smaller, as even the subproject must be included when users attempt to clone or download the ‘parent’. Subtree-merging cannot be used, as the subproject is being actively developed, and subtree merging makes it […]

Rebasing a branch including all its children

I have the following Git repository topology: A-B-F (master) \ D (feature-a) \ / C (feature) \ E (feature-b) By rebasing feature branch I expected to rebase the whole subtree (including child branches): $ git rebase feature master A-B-F (master) \ D (feature-a) \ / C (feature) \ E (feature-b) However, this is the actual […]
