Hello,

I’ve just had a look at the branches, and I see that we currently have
⁃ master
⁃ main
⁃ maint

My previous impression was that `master' was the main development branch, and
`maint' was for testing (though I wasn’t 100% sure). However now there’s `master',
`main', and `maint' I’m feeling a bit unsure of what exactly is going on.

A clarification would be much appreciated 🙂.

All the best,
Timothy

Nope, the official source repository contains 

- main : the development branch (aka the old "master")
- bugfix : the bugfix branch (aka the old "maint")
- km/from-master-emacs : the branch to help with Emacs sync

You probably listed your local branch with "git branch -a" or by
checking your .git/config file.  

If you clone a fresh repo like this:

~$ git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/emacs/org-mode.git

and fetch all the branches (git fetch --all) you should only see
the three branches mentioned above.

Also, you can now forget code.orgmode.org, I've prevented any
push there.

HTH,

Yep, I think this was some sort of git leftovers. I’ve done a fresh clone and
I’m now seeing about half as many `origin/*' branches, which I’d consider to be a
success. Thanks for clearing this up Bastien 🙂.

All the best,
Timothy

     git fetch --prune

might help to keep personal local branches but to remove non-existing 
remote ones if you changed URL of origin repository. I renamed old 
"origin" and added new one with savannah URL, so each repository has its 
own branch (That is why I may be a bit wrong concerning exact behavior 
of --prune in this case).

i have forgotten all my non-basic git, so i guess i am in for a bunch
of figuring out the automatic rebase of my stuff on top of upstream.

perhaps i can do a single git clone, do the rebase, and then change
branches to create the ohters.  but i presume this is a normal git
thing git clone to get rid of stuff lying around, deal with tags, and
deal with branches?

if there is documentation perhaps say that bugfix ~= stable?
