Whenever I’m rebasing in my feature branch from our ‘master’ branch, my feature branch seems to lose its tracking information. What’s wrong with this workflow? $ git clone repo_url $ git co -b feature/my_work_task Do a bunch of work here $ git commit -am”Commit my work” $ git push # push the branch upstream $ […]
I’ve been using Git/Beanstalk while developing a new site and it has worked wonders for pushing changes from Local server to the Staging Server.
