I push all my local changes to the Pantheon git repository, then I update core via the pantheon dashboard. Now I pull from the Pantheon repository with git pull git://github.com/pantheon-systems/drops-7.git master. I am assuming that both versions are identical now. However, when I run git status, I get a message about my branch being ahead of origin/master.

Can somebody explain this to me? How can I get the local and remote repository in sync?

Yes that makes perfect sense - you've merged changes from the core repo, so your working copy is one commit ahead of your site's dev repo on Pantheon. Note that origin/master refers to the remote representing your repo, not drops-7.git

git push

to send the changes up to your dev site when you're ready to test, then pull them through the dashboard as normal.

  • Thanks Clive, That clears it up. I had assumed that the remote repo and drops-7.git were the same. Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 17:44
