No -- your set of commands will *NOT* work.

No, this set of my commands is not correct, because staging can be reset.
So we never want to merge on it, and the git pull commands will do a

I will get a revised set of commands up either later today or tomorrow.



Not having a go at Carl, but I've still not got a simple list of
commands that will work to push a simple change to staging, and I
could make 2 patches to push if I had - one to update the bug squad
and one to speed up doc remakes slightly.

git fetch (to be sure you have the current version of staging)
git checkout origin/staging
... commit your simple change ...
git push origin HEAD:staging

This assumes that you have staging in the branches you fetch.  If that
is not the case, add an appropriate fetch line to the [remote "origin"]
section in your .git/config file.


I updated my .config as you suggested, and followed the instructions above. My patch pushed successfully to staging, thanks. Unless anyone screams, I'll add this to the CG.
