Don't you have a common branch, like master? You can't work with detached heads, so you'd need to make a new branch there. Once you made changes to such a branch, then you either merge this branch into the branches for Beth and Albert and so on, in turn, or you rebase each of these branches onto the tip of the branch you worked on. so if A,B,C are branes off master and you work a bit on master, then either: for i in A B C: do git checkout $i git merge master done or for i in A B C; do git rebase master $i done I suggest you make a copy of the repo and try this stuff out to see what the difference is. gitk is really useful to visualise the graph. -- martin | http://madduck.net/ | http://two.sentenc.es/ what do you mean, it's not packaged in debian? spamtraps: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
