Subject: Wrong configuration variable mentioned in git-push documentation (examples section)
Date: Mon, 22 Feb 2021 07:07:00 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAAxrY9yjTKV8-K0AmO4fBmtDrSB4KkN_xKOMmtSb-dvixJNaEQ@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hello

In the file Documentation/git-push.txt under the EXAMPLES section,
specifically under
`git push origin`::, remote.origin.merge configuration variable is
said to configure the
upstream branch for the origin remote, when in fact it should be
branch.<name>.merge,
where <name> is the name of the local branch at which HEAD is
currently pointing to.

Here's en excerpt:

> `git push origin`::
>         Without additional configuration, pushes the current branch to
>         the configured upstream (`remote.origin.merge` configuration
>         variable) if it has the same name as the current branch, and
>         errors out without pushing otherwise.


I'm still learning Git so I thought I would share this with you (I got
confused reading
the examples). Maybe I'll learn something new or/and correct the
aforementioned error.

Regards
