git - branching from local repo
I am trying to set up a local repository (LOCAL_REPO) from some git branch (MASTER) which is to be used by a group of people.
To do this i did the following :
- git clone /path to master
- git checkout -b LOCAL_REPO MASTER
This creates a branch LOCAL_REPO for me at my local shared directory (SHARED_PATH)
Now this LOCAL_REPO is used amon a set of people and any changes that they commit will be to LOCAL_REPO which can be synced with MASTER. So i tried creating local branch(MY_LOCAL) for myself at some path.
- git clone SHARED_PATH
- got checkout -b MY_LOCAL LOCAL_REPO
I am facing following issues :
- when i create MY_LOCAL MASTER is checked out by default. Should it not be LOCAL_REPO
- while trying the second option i get the following error :
Blockquote fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches
After that i tried "git remote show origin" , this shows me LOCAL_REPO as remote and tracked. What is the mistake i am doing here ?
