Hello, how about this?
git fetch origin hotfix.module-xxx git checkout -b hotfix.module-xxx origin/hotfix.module-xxx (compile, test, whatever) git checkout master Maybe there's a shorthand for fetch & checkout -b. I'm not behind git --help right now to check. It worked for me several times this way.
