How to cleanly get (“copy”) a remote git branch to local repository
When using GIT, how would one "get" (fetch/pull/whatever...) a remote branch that someone else has committed to the remote repository to your own local repository in a way that does not try and perform a merge on your own local code? Rather I want an exact "copy" of the remote branch "copied" to a specific local branch.
Say, for example, a team member has created an experimental feature which he's checked in to branch "experiment" on the remote repository.
I want to be able to check out a new branch on my local repository and just "copy" the experiment branch as-is to my newly checked out branch. I don't want to merge it with my code - I want to completely overwrite my code so that I can have a clean look at what he's done on the "experiment" branch. How to do this?
