Local git repo force updated from a remote git repo. (thick-client deployments)
Update: I think this is related to an issue with the windows git client msysgit. Sorry to trouble you guys. http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/issues/detail?id=379&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Priority%20Component%20Owner%20Summary
I'm looking for a way to keep several client boxes in synch with a remote git repo. Forcing updates from the remote repo and abandoning anything that may have changed on the client boxes.
The problem I'm running into is that the client boxes will modify some of the files (installation logs etc.) and gives me a merge nightmare when I need to update them from the remote repo. I've tried several commands to try and reset their local changes (the local changes should just be abandoned), but none seem to be working as advertised (git reset --hard).
I don't want to do a clone and then delete the .git dir on these boxes as I'd prefer them to only update with changes rather than pulling down the entire repo every time.
I created a remote from the local repo I want to pull from. I then fetch it, and made a branch from it with git checkout -b test *remote-name*/*remote-branch* so I now have it as a branch that I'm in.
