git push to specific branch
Even after reading this question: git-push-current-branch
I am still having difficulty figuiring out how I should write my git push command. As mentioned in the question link, its not clear from the documentation.
I would like to use my 'real world' example. Following is what I see when I do a
git status command on the top level of my branch:
On branch amd_qlp_tester
Your branch is ahead of 'origin/amd_qlp_tester' by 5 commits.
so my branch name is
amd_qlp_tester but it was "branched" off from a main branch (if I have the terms wrong its because of my SVN background). But then there is also the name `origin/amd_qlp_testser'
So how do I phrase my push command?
is it any of these:
git push origin/amd_qlp_tester?
git push origin amd_qlp_tester?
git push amd_qlp_tester?
git push origin?
