Wish me luck.
I just typed the following commands:
- git clone https://github.org/freebsd/freebsd-head.git
- 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.
