I want to be able to do the following:
Create a local branch based on some other (remote or local) branch (via
git checkout -b)
Push the local branch
to the remote repository (publish), but make it
git pushwill work immediately.
How do I do that?
I know about
--set-upstream in Git 1.7, but that is a post-creation action. I want to find a way to make a similar change when pushing the branch to the remote repository.
In Git 1.7.0 and later, you can checkout a new branch:
git checkout -b <branch>
Edit files, add and commit. Then push with the
-u (short for
git push -u origin <branch>
Git will set up the tracking information during the push.
