Set file permissions to be executable using GIT on windows

Luckily there is an easy solution with GIT.

$ git update-index --chmod=+x

Git Deployment and Branching Stratergies

The branching strategy outlined by Vincent at is what I use myself.

This posts adds a few Git commands I find useful in my day to day work.

Pushing a release branch to a remote server

$ git checkout -b release-1.2 develop
$ ./ 1.2
$ git commit -a -m "Bumped version number to 1.2"

If I want to push this release branch to another server, I can do so via origin in the standard way:

$ git push origin release-1.2

And then on the remote server:

$ git fetch origin
$ git checkout -b release-1.2 origin/release-1.2
