I don't quite follow what you describe (including `git checkout` with a dot argument of which I still have no idea after consulting the manual), but the closest thing I can think of is that after you reset the working tree and do `git pull` you get merge conflicts. Feel free to provide more details. Start afresh with cloning, go to a console window, show us the output of `git-status`, do `git reset -- hard`, show us `git status`, then pull, show what it prints etc. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
