Git remote branches are different on my local compared to server

The local checkout on my computer and the one on the dev server are looking at the same Git repository, but the results of git branch -a (show all remote branches) is very different.

Reason: git pull origin master does not get all the branch and tag information the way git fetch does!


git fetch origin

Now git branch -a and git checkout branchicareabout both work.

Pushing our local repository to Gitorious

git checkout master
git remote add origin
git push origin master

This was for a module named "remarkup" as covered in

Remote drush commands

How we would probably want this to work is that "rake prod vlad:drush XXX" call "ssh prodservername drush -r /path/to/project/drupal XXX"

For instance: ssh prodservername drush -r /path/to/project/drupal enable bad_judgement

Putting a local project maintained in git on a server as a central repository

Note: The agaric git repository is not public, but this approach will work on your own server.

Stefan explained: copy your folders to your home dir on the server, cd to /srv/git and then run git clone --bare folder folder.git

cd ~
scp -r customhome

On the server:

ben@server:/srv/git/agaric$ git clone --bare ~/customhome customhome.git

Initialized empty Git repository in /srv/git/agaric/customhome.git/

And don't forget!
