Hi Tomas - it appears to be working fine with grafting. thanks a lot for
there is one issue though : seems like I have duplicate commits. these are
the latest ones and not the old ones I fetched from the older repository.
one part of the commits starts at remote/origin/master, and the other one
starts at master. sha1 nums are different ones of course. since I followed
the instructions I was wondering how it happened and if should I remove the
duplicated ones with rebase -i now.
