We are using a git repository to store our project. We have our branches departing from the original branch. But now we want to create a small new project to track some documentation. For that we would want to create a new empty branch to start storing our files, and I would want other users of the network to clone that branch.
How can we do that?
I tried some things, but they didn't work.
$ mkdir proj_doc; cd proj_doc $ git init $ git add . $ git commit -m 'first commit' $ git br proj_doc $ git co proj_doc $ git br -d master $ git push origin proj_doc
It seems to push the branch ok, but when I do a fetch or pull, it downloads information from other branches, and then I also get some extra files from other projects. What's the best solution?
