I find this terminology confusing.  Doesn't the master contain the branch?  
So, why can't I push a branch against the master?  If I've checked out 
branch x, the push will be applied to that branch, I would expect.

Why is it designed so that you must specify the branch with checkout but 
again specify the branch with push -- seems redundant.  I'm sure to be 
corrected :)

The git tutorial:

http://jk.gs/gittutorial.html

doesn't mention this in a way which I saw, they just switch back to the 
master and drop the branch as redundant, ignoring the possibility of 
pushing that branch.  For me, this was an oversight.



thanks,
