Yes. I am a victim of circumstance. damn. Remote: live $ git branch -a *live master remotes/site/live remotes/site/master test $ git branch -a * test remotes/site/HEAD -> site/master remotes/master remotes/site/test Local clone: *master remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master remotes/origin/live remotes/origin/master remotes/origin/test Thank you. I will read both of those links. Despite following a tutorial and finding a lot of good information on sites like Stackoverflow, one issue which has been difficult is this idea of redundancy of multiple states (test, live) in each instance (e.g. live directory has a test state) seems simply like a clever use of branches, but also serious overhead (two states = 2^2 and three states (dev,stage,live) 3^3). Any chance you have a link covering this too? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
