Subject Re: marking pull request committer correctly
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 19:24:50 GMT
I was surprised that those instructions worked until I read what git
checkout NAME/branch does.

I found this:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1783405/git-checkout-remote-branch which
advises the syntax:

git checkout -b branch NAME/branch

which saves one command, I think.

Either way, I am not sure how to avoid adding the remote in the first place.
