Nice write-up.

Is there an "atypical triangular-workflow"? Drop "typical" and explain what you mean by triangular, perhaps like When you pull from one place (e.g. your upstream) and push to another place (e.g. your own publishing repository), Then the rest of the text flows more naturally without ever introducing a new lingo "triangular" that is not in glossary. > + ... you would want to set `remote.pushdefault` to specify > + the remote to push to for all branches, and use this option to > + override it for a specific branch. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
