One of the things I wanted to make sure is that my develop branch is properly available for multiple machines and users.
Before you start, you will need to grab git-flow. OS X users can cheat and use the homebrew (brew install git-flow)
Quick steps (assumes a remote exists with both master and develop branches).
git clone remote_reporistory_path git checkout -b develop origin/develop git flow init
Now if you have already cloned the repository and setup gitflow, you can enable remote tracking with:
git checkout develop git branch --set-upstream origin/develop
That’s it. Now you (and others) can properly access and share the develop branch. You can follow the same steps to setup a release/hotfix/etc branches.
