Subject: [RFC doc] Tracking git.git
Date: Thu, 13 May 2021 20:05:43 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


Some people (most notably Git developers here and me) like to run Git
compiled from git.git repository, as opposed to normal users that run
either Git from distribution or compiled from official source tarball.

In git.git repo, besides master, there is also next, seen, and maint
branches. The purposes of these branches are described on

When we have git.git repo clone and track it, tracking master, next,
and maint are easy peasy: git pull will do the job. But tracking seen
is more like tracking linux-next. We do NOT use git pull because
often doing so will try to merge origin (upstream) with our local
version, which are divergent and most likely will end with conflict.
Instead, we do git fetch first followed by resetting to upstream by
git reset --hard origin/seen.

Should the fact above be documented? And on what file the fact should
be placed? In INSTALL?
