How do I fix missing git remote details?
Some repository clones I have allow me to do this:
% git pull % git push
But other repositories require me to type:
% git pull origin master % git push origin master
I think I am missing something in the latter case - does anyone know what is (not) going on here? I am using the latest git version, just obviously not using it well.
If you cd into your repository directory and then open up your .git/config file in an editor.
Append this to the end of the file:
[branch "master"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/master
This is pretty much just an alias so git knows by default to pull from origin master.
