Checking out the specific branch
Clone creates the master branch. However, you will have to tell it the specific branch that you want to check out.
akhilesh@AKHILESHPC MINGW64 /d/yourproject-akhilesh $ cd yourproject
akhilesh@AKHILESHPC MINGW64 /d/yourproject-akhilesh/your project (master) $ git checkout sprint7 Branch sprint7 set up to track remote branch sprint7 from origin. Switched to a new branch 'sprint7' akhilesh@AKHILESHPC MINGW64 /d/yourproject-akhilesh/your project (sprint7) $
Pushing to a remote
Use git push to push commits made on your local branch to a remote repository.
$ git push <REMOTENAME> <BRANCHNAME>
Use git fetch to retrieve new work done by other people.
$ git fetch remotename
Merging combines your local changes with changes made by others.
$ git merge remotename/branchname
Git pull is a convenient shortcut for completing both git fetch and git merge in the same command:
$ git pull remotename branchname
