How exactly do you try pushing this new issue branch ("#3178")? Please copy > and paste in the exact commands you used. OK! Thanks for helping me out - I am on a local git rep - update-2.0.2 - and I will start working on a new branch which is related to a particular issue of my issue tracking system. For reasons of convenience and overview we decided with the other team members to name our branches with the same number as the issue id. So I start with "git checkout -b #3168" and before I do any kind of changes I try to push this new branch into my remote origin repository. Whenever I try that I get the message "Everything up-to-date". git push origin #3168 In the meantime I am not sure how much all this has to do with Xcode - as there are some other strange behaviour - for example I can't rename my branches. When I do a git branch -m #3168 iss3168 it just returns a listing of my branches but doesn't change anything at all. I am running git version 126.96.36.199 (Apple Git-26) Am Mittwoch, 4.
