GIT: Adding new branch and new working tree?

+3 votes

Help me to resolve problem. I have master branch for remote repo. Also I can see files of this repo because I added file in hooks directory and added working directory, where I can see files. I want to create new branch and new working tree for this to check files.

Running on Windows with latest version of Git. 1.9.4. Also had this trouble with 1.8.2 but upgraded hoping it would fix the problem.

When I do a reset on several files, it says they were successfully reverted they still show up as modified when I do a git status. In this case it's just a newline character at the end of the file. I also tried a reset -- hard and they files still show up! What the heck! Help please.

In trying to reproduce this, I re-cloned the git repo from the server, which was in the exact clean state before I started last time. No files have been modified after cloning, all are identical. Then, I created a new branch (totally new, not tracking a remote branch). Viola - I now have these files show up in my git status as modified. Please note that these are files that have been tracked for several previous commits.

Just to clarify - the only command I ran to make this happen is: git checkout -b newbranch

And GitGui shows the files as identical even when compare whitespace is turned on.

I have two branch in one repository that I need to maintain for 2 different deliveries.
Say branch1 and branch2 in test.git repo.

- branch1
- branch2

branch1 is developers branch all source looks version'ed manner and branch2 is superset for branch1, example foo_v1 and foo_v2 are the directories in branch1 where developer will update the latest one here foo_v2 and branch2 foo is same as the latest one of branch1 for an instance.

Suppose developer send 10 patches on branch1 where are changes in terms of _/ then I need to apply on my local repo branch1, till now is fine then I need to apply same 10 patches on to my branch2 where source tree which is quite question here how can I do.

When I update my branch from master it pulls down several files, including some sass files. When I compile, however, gulp alerts me that I am missing .scss files.

I tested this by creating a new fresh branch and running gulp sass. This time there were no errors and I saw the missing .scss had been brought in.

Would anyone know why, on update, I am only getting some of the files from master?

I would like to know what are the best practices when creating a new branch. For example. If I get a request to do update website title from XYZ to ABC; then should I create a branch named; "Update Title"? Or I should prefix this as suggested here ( Are there any official prefixes?

Also I am concerned about the following; Let us say I create the branch named "Update Title". Finish the change. Merge back with Master. I then get another request to change title from ABC to DEF. Can I create another branch "Update Title". Will not this be confusing?
