[remote "ram"] push = refs/heads/link:refs/heads/for-junio/link is saying: if the branch name matches "link", push it to for-junio/link. [branch "link"] push = refs/heads/for-junio/link is saying: push _this_ branch to for-junio/link, irrespective of what it is called. An example illustrating this clearly: # on branch link-v2 # work ... $ git push # work ... # ok, I'm ready to replace link $ git branch -M link $ git push # where should the push go? Also: putting branch-specific configuration in remote.<name>.push would mean that it can potentially accumulate a lot of cruft from deleted branches. It's the same kind problem we face with .gitignore, no? -- 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
