I need some help to do the correct steps (it might be more git than eGit related):
I have a git project on github. It's some software extension development for another software. It would be good to create a new branch for each version of this software which would then allow me to build my stuff exactly for a certain version and to now mess up with new features from this other software.
Would I have to create a local branch first? If yes, how would I have to configure the "create new branch" dialog. So far, I did only very basic stuff with git (no branching). I'm not sure whether I understand all options (selection of source ref, pull strategy).
