Wish me luck: taking the git plunge

Wish me luck.

I just typed the following commands:

  • git clone
  • cd freebsd-head
  • git branch army
  • git checkout army
and started my own local branch.  Wish me luck.  Oh, I've said it, but with git, I think I might need it.  I actually didn't type exactly the above, but that's what I should have typed.  git reset seems to have been my friend.  We'll see next time I pull from github...  and if I can get the rebase command to work for me better than mercurial has been working for me at work.

Now, to figure out how to do  a similar thing to patch queues, except I really want to just correct commits rather than use a whole different set of commands.
