How do I remove the active branch in a bare `git` repository?
I'm experimenting with some
githooks, so I have setup a local bare repository with a symlink from
hooks to the hooks stored elsewhere.
I have pushed the
master branch to the
git repo and, of course, the hook failed. :)
I want to reset the
git repo to nothing, without deleting it and having to recreate the symlink etc.
How do I delete the master branch, seeing as it is the only branch in the repository?
$ git branch -d master
error: Cannot delete the branch 'master' which you are currently on.
