We've just recently started using Git. Previously our shop was using SVN. With that in mind this might just be a newbie question.
When I create a new local branch and then push it up to the github repository, I'm unable to pull changes until I go to the egit properties and manually add the repository settings for the new branch. I would assume that there is a way to create these settings automatically.
In addition anyone who tries to retrieve the new branch has issues. They are able to see the new branch in the remote repositories view but the only way we've been able to pull that branch down locally seems kind of convoluted.
The developer who wants to use the new branch first has to create a new branch locally with the same name and then they have to manually add the configuration for the new branch.
I'm really hoping that there's a better way to do this and we can chalk this up to our own ignorance about egit and git.
