git-branch only operates on local branches and any tinkering with remotes goes via git-push. To rename a wrongly-named remote branch delete it and push under a correct name; deleting is done by pushing an empty refspect (see the git-push manual). Hence do this: $ git push test :databaseTsts databaseTests this will a) delete a remote object named "databaseTsts"; b) push a local object "databaseTests" to the same named remote object. Note that you don't really understand why do you need that "refs/ remotes/dev/" prefix -- git usually does just the right thing when you supply short names to git-push. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
