The branches I need to merge are called test and test-passed. Merging will always be fast-forward, from test to test-passed as commits to test-passed are only done automatically from test. This is currently working, just wondering if the approach is correct. The script is executed by Hudson, once all testing is complete.
git status git reset --hard git pull origin test git checkout origin/test git pull origin test-passed git checkout origin/test-passed git merge origin/test git push origin HEAD:test-passed
One specific question I have, is if I need to create local branches as well (-b) or is that not required?
Output from above:
