From: Adam Sharafeddine <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 -- Adam
