Subject Re: strange commit last night
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 15:49:34 GMT

I've been following this pattern when doing a push:

# git pull origin master
# git pull --rebase
# git push origin master

password issues while trying to do the push to master. During the debugging of that I modified
.git/config, thinking I had a problem with trying to push to a read-only repo URL.  When I
got home later last night I realized it was password-related and pushed the changes out.

- the KEYS file and a "merge" to master, which I think is the result of the repo URL getting
tweaked. Two commits/pushes happened since I had committed my KEYS change, but git didn't
ask me to pull down those changes before doing the push, as it usually does.(lesson learned:
always do git pull before git push) It looks like no files were modified by the merge, other
than git metadata.
