Links: Git remote branches and Git's missing terminology (and more)

June 23, 2017

Mark Jason Dominus's Git remote branches and Git's missing terminology (via) is about what it sounds like. This is an issue of some interest to me, since I flailed around in the same general terminology swamp in a couple of recent entries. Dominus explains all of this nicely, with diagrams, and it helped reinforce things in my mind (and reassure me that I more or less understood what was going on).

He followed this up with Git's rejected push error, which covers a frequent 'git push' issue with the same thoroughness as his first article. I more or less knew this stuff, but again I found it useful to read through his explanation to make sure I actually knew as much as I thought I did.
