First, I clone my github repo:
git clone g...@github.com:daviddoria/daviddoria-vtk.git
Then I want to work on a particular branch (there are several - you
can see them here: http://github.com/daviddoria/daviddoria-vtk)
If I 'git branch -a' I see:
[dor...@doriadjec VTK-GraphIterators]$ git branch -a
remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/VTK-daviddoria
Then if I
git checkout remotes/origin/VTK-GraphConversions
it says that I am on a detached HEAD
If I instead do
git checkout -b VTK-GraphConversions remotes/origin/VTK-
It seems like it creates a NEW branch because I get
$ git branch -a
How should I begin working on a branch after I clone the repo?
