Can't “pull” with smartgit, “fetch only” is available

I use SmartGit as a GUI for git. But so far, I always have the same problem. In my projects (all of them), I can’t pull, the button is disabled, it’s only the “fetch only” button which is available. But if I run the command git pull origin master it works fine and I can […]

Working with zend framework and git in large projects

I’m having some problems working with zf and git in a pretty large project. The zf application has about 20 modules and for the moment everything is stored in a single git repository.

How to make git-config to use spaces instead of tabs

When I use git-config to edit my .gitconfig file, it inserts tabs. Is there a way to make it insert spaces instead of tabs? (The motivation is that when I hand-edit the file, I always insert spaces.

Succinct way to create a tracking branch with Git

Today I had to work with a remote branch called origin/}__test_syntax_error_in_simpack_settings. I wanted to create a tracking branch for it. I had to type: git branch }__test_syntax_error_in_simpack_settings origin/}__test_syntax_error_in_simpack_settings I didn’t have autocompletion on the first argument, only on the second. I don’t like typing. Is there a faster way to do this? The main barrier […]

How do I open the Git GUI from a command window? I’m using Windows 7. I’ve tried running this: “C:\Apps\Git\libexec\git-core\git-gui” but that’s not a windows script.
