First checkout a different branch than the one you want to delete, for example the master branch.
git checkout origin master
To delete your local and remote branch execute the following. “-r” stands for remote and “-d” for delete.
git branch -rd example
First delete the local branch:
git branch -d example
And after that also the remote branch:
git push origin :example
In a project you’ll reach at a certain point the need to start working on a new major version of your application, lets say version 2. Then you’ll probably want the current master to move to a branch with a name like “1.x” and from then on the master branch will contain version “2.x”.
To accomplish this, you’ll have to do some simple steps. I assume you already have a Git clone on your computer, go to the root directory of your clone and make sure you are in the master branch.
git branch -a

This blog post will describe how to setup a central repository where everybody pulls from and pushes to. This is actually the default work flow in Subversion.
Create a “git” user on your server.
sudo adduser git nano /etc/group git:x:1000:myusername,www-data,nobody sudo mkdir /opt/git_projects sudo chown git.git /opt/git_projects sudo chmod 2770 /opt/git_projects cd /opt/git_projects
Git has a naming convention that repositories that you share with others have a “.git” suffix. Local repositories have just a name. To create a git bare (also called shared remote) repository do the following on the command line.
su git mkdir example.git chmod
When trying to convert a SVN repository that contained all our projects, I couldn’t find a good solution on the internet on one page.
The most usefull pages were:
I combined them together and described the steps below that will get the job done.
sudo adduser git nano /etc/group git:x:100:usera,userb,userc sudo mkdir /usr/local/git_root sudo chown git.git /usr/local/git_root sudo chmod 2770 /usr/local/git_root
Create authors.txt file for user mapping:
root = Root <email@example.com> usera = My name <firstname.lastname@example.org>
To get a listing of all users in the repository:
svn log file:///development/svn_projects | grep -E
