git - best way to checkout code from remote branch
my current workflow to deploy code is to branch a "releases" branch from master when i believe the code is in a stable state. on my production side, i do a simple
git fetch origin and than check out my code via
git checkout origin/releases/v1.0 or whatever the release number is at that time. at this point my head is detached. so to avoid this, i just do something like
git checkout -b releases/v1.0 origin/releases/v1.0. makes my
git status look much better. to date, this has never been an issue (of course i do no modifications in this git repo).
i am essentially creating what i'll call leaf branches (correct term?. idk.) with my releases. i just found that
git checkout -t <branch> will in fact do the checkout and creation of the local branch with the name i am looking for. however, it is setting up the upstream configuration that i don't need.
so based on my deployment process:
- Does it really matter if i have a detached head if i just checkout from remote via
git checkout origin/releases/v1.0?
- Since my process does not lend itself to pushing any code from my production server, does it make sense to
git checkout -b releases/v1.0 origin/releases/v1.0 or have it actually tracked via
git checkout -t origin/releases/v1.0?
