That's odd. It means you have no local branches at all, while under normal circumstances `git clone` should have created a local branch named "master" to thack the same named remote branch. Now do this: 1) Run `git branch -a` -- it also should show you remote branches (if any). 2) If the output lists the remote branch named "master" (say, "origin/ master") create the local "master" branch to track it using git checkout master origin/master If you will not see the remote master branch, I'd recommend starting afresh with `git clone`. If you will see a bunch of remote branches but no "master", then it means wine developers have their own peculiar naming scheme for their lines of work, -- ask them what branch you're supposed to work with. This branch can be specified in a call to `git clone` if it's not named "master". -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
