lab 45 Adding a Tracking Branch
- Learn how to add a local branch that tracks a remote branch.
The branches starting with remotes/origin are branches from the original repo. Notice that you don’t have a branch called greet anymore, but it knows that the original repo had a greet branch.
Add a local branch that tracks a remote branch.
git branch --track greet origin/greet git branch -a git hist --max-count=2
$ git branch --track greet origin/greet Branch 'greet' set up to track remote branch 'greet' from 'origin'. $ git branch -a greet * main remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/main remotes/origin/greet remotes/origin/main $ git hist --max-count=2 * 5e2d55e 2023-06-10 | Changed README in original repo (HEAD -> main, origin/main, origin/HEAD) [Jim Weirich] * 5f626c6 2023-06-10 | Updated Rakefile (origin/greet, greet) [Jim Weirich]
We can now see the greet branch in the branch list and in the log.
