Can't parse that.

If course it doesn't that's what you told git to do. Of course, you
could simply do:

% git branch --set-downstream-to origin/rr/for-junio/hot-branch

Or if you are going to push multiple branches and set a 'remote.<name>.push':

% git branch --unset-downstream

Yes there is, I thought you already acknowledged that:

% git branch --set-downstream-to github/fc/master
% git rebase -i @{downstream}
