I also wrote a script to fast-forward all local branches to their configured upstream refs. I finally got around to uploading it somewhere public: https://github.com/richardhansen/git-update-branch I use it in my 'git up' alias: git config --global alias.up \ '!git remote update -p; git update-branch -a' If there's interest I can tweak the style to conform to Documentation/CodingGuidelines and stick it in contrib/ or something. -Richard -- 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
