How do I undo tracking a remote branch in git?
I've accidentally unhitched my master branch from tracking origin master I think. It used to be that I could run
git pull and
git push and it would know that I meant
git push origin master but now it does not, and I think it's tracking a different branch because
git push origin master works fine (everything up to date) and
git push tells me it can't fast-forward changes.
Here's what my
git branch -a looks like:
ianstormtaylor:nib Storm$ git branch -a
remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master
Not sure if that
remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master is the part that is messed up.
I think this all resulted from a
git merge origin sizing call when i meant to do
git merge sizing (while on master).
Anyone know what's going on and is able to help? I'd just like to get back to the default remote-tracking setup that
git clone creates.
I created and switched to a new branch and made some changes that haven't been commited. How do I return to the state of my last commit? I used git reset --hard HEAD but all the changed files are sti
