git, Subversion and branches

less than 1 minute read

Co-workers have started discovering the power of branches, could be because I’ve been sharing tutorials on them, could be because we’re making so many breaking changes lately.

As such I find myself needing to manage their branches in git more often, and I keep reaching for this post.

git fetch --all
git branch -r
git checkout -b waldo-svn remotes/waldo

and keeping the branch up to date:

git checkout waldo-svn
git svn rebase
