Is there a git command that returns the current project name?

Does git have a built-in command for showing the name of the current remote project? Right now I’m using this: git remote -v | head -n1 | awk ‘{print $2}’ | sed ‘s/.*\///’ | sed ‘s/\.git//’ …but it seems like there would be a built-in equivalent.

why should I delete feature branches when merged to master

Most of the git workflows I’ve seen suggest to delete a branch after it’s been merged into master.

How do I git-add with wildcards when ignored files are present?

I’m using msysgit on Windows 7 x64. I can’t figure out how to tell Git to add a lot of files when there are some files that .gitignore might ignore. For example: Initialize a git repository. Create a .gitignore with contents: *.foo Create files “test.txt” and “”. Try git add . When I try this, […]

Can I rebase a Git branch without modifying my working copy?

Suppose I have my “master” branch checked out. I’ve committed some production changes to “master”, and now I want to rebase my “experimental” branch onto the latest master.

SourceTree and Stash: Unable to get local issuer certificate

We have Atlassian Stash installed on a windows 2k8 r2 server, and for the most part everything is working nicely. We have a SSL certificate issued by our local on-premise CA and a DNS entry set up so we can go to https://stash/ and it works quite nicely except in Firefox where it throws a […]

How long should I keep my fork projects on github?

When I have a feature request on a library in github, I would either try to contact the author and/or implement it myself on a local copy, and when I am done, fork the project and push my changes. More often than not, the original authors are happy to see the enhancements, and they’ll either […]
