git push

git push after git tag problem (everything up-to-date)

If you attempt to do a normal git push origin master after adding a tag, you’ll get an “Everything up-to-date” message from Git. In short, this is because you have to push a tag to the origin just like you push a branch.

In my case I just created a tag named v0.1, so I pushed it like this:

git push origin v0.1

The output from the git push command looks like this:

git status message - Your branch is ahead of origin/master by X commits

git status FAQ: When I issue the "git status" command, I see the following "Your branch is ahead or origin/master ..." git message:

# On branch master
# Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 5 commits.
#
nothing to commit (working directory clean)

What does this "Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by X commits" message mean? I keep committing my changes with "git commit", so this message seems to be in error.
