Thank you.
I'll look at it when getting back to the computer I'm using for this kind of works.

Looks like there is no need to change anything in my settings for git.
Yes strange.

Apparently GIMP_HELP_2_8_2 is a tag that is actually also master. If you
are set onto that tag it should prompt the infamous message of "detached
HEAD" like this:


git checkout GIMP_HELP_2_8_2
Note: checking out 'GIMP_HELP_2_8_2'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state.You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

   git checkout -b new_branch_name

HEAD is now at 8529155... Added link to 2.8.2 release


redoing git checkout master fix it:


git checkout master
Previous HEAD position was 8529155... Added link to 2.8.2 release
Switched to branch 'master'
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.


So I cannot explain that previous error message.
Anyway it is all ok so... no problem! :-)

PS: I'll stay off-line for a week or so for holydays in London...

I know a joke about UDP, but you might not get it.
