git: delete remote branch from mirror tree
I built a repository using
git clone --mirror <url>
I want to remove some remote branches, but I get the following:
$ git push origin :b
error: --mirror can't be combined with refspecs
$ git push --delete b
fatal: --delete doesn't make sense without any refs
git branch -D b does not touch the remote.
Is there a way to remove remote branches from a mirror clone or do I have to build another clone for that?
What is the all-in-one (or at least easier) way to accomplish this? Basically I want to create a branch but have it tracked so I can push changes, as a backup, to a central repo. git branch BranchName
