Your instructions and theirs already differ in the way in which the branch changes are obtained.

What does "git remote -v" print? $ git remote -v origin https://github.com/macports/macports-ports.git (fetch) origin https://github.com/macports/macports-ports.git (push) Possibly relevant: I do, of course, use two-factor authentication, but I just supplied my password; I was not asked to provide a two-factor auth token. I remember having to follow some instructions to set up GitHub Desktop with some kind of access to allow it to commit, but that was months ago so I couldn't tell you what I did. >> Now I still seem to have this branch in my local git repo: >> >> $ git branch >> l2dy-curl-ca-bundle-update >> * master >> >> Can I delete it?

I did already run "git branch -D l2dy-curl-ca-bundle-update" when "git branch -d l2dy-curl-ca-bundle-update" failed because of an error. > One small addendum: Before "git push origin master", you should run "git > pull --rebase" to get any new commits that were pushed by other > committers. I assume if this was necessary I would have received an error message when I tried to push? _______________________________________________ macports-dev mailing list email@example.com https://lists.macosforge.org/mailman/listinfo/macports-dev
