Tried to push to git and got ref errors? A reminder to myself:
If the GitHub repo has seen new commits pushed to it, while you were working locally, I would advice for:
git pull –rebase
The full syntax is:
git pull –rebase origin master
git push origin master
That way, you would replay (the –rebase part) your local commits on top of the newly updated origin/master (or origin/yourBranch: git pull origin yourBranch).
See a more complete example in the chapter 6 Pull with rebase of the Git Pocket Book.
I would recommend a:
git push -u origin master
That would establish a tracking relationship between your local master branch and its upstream branch.
