Hey. I'm a newbie struggling to understand git.I'm trying to do what seems like a simple thing in darcs, monotone, mecurial, gnu arch, etc, but seems nearly impossible in git. There's a central repository, a long ways away on the other side of the internet. So I want a local repository cache. I'm going to be working on a number of different features and different machines all simultaneously so I really don't want them all to be pulling from the central repository.
In other systems, this is a simple star network. Clone a repository, use, push, pull, etc. But with git, I can't push unless the cache repository is bare, but if the cache repository is bare, then a change to the central repository will cause the two to become wedged since neither can push or fetch the other. It seems that git is allergic to the dual head branch solution or something, which is surprising and disappointing.
How do other people address these situations in git? --rich -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
