Git issue branch ... the sandbox route

I'm working on a patch to implement issue triage for Dreditor

But for ease of use and teasing in testers git issue branches would be great which are underways.

So in the mean time I use a sandbox for this. But how to get dreditor code into my repo?

  1. First create a sandbox on d.o. This gives to access to a new git repo.
  2. Ignore the initial git instructions
  3. Clone dreditor according the git instructions
    git clone 
    cd dreditor/
  4. Add your sandbox repository to this dreditor repo
    git remote add triage-1115636
  5. Now push the dreditor repo to your sandbox
    git push triage-1115636 master
  6. Checkout you sandbox according to the new appeared sandbox git instructions ... don't forget to refresh the page.
    cd ..
    git clone --branch master dreditor___triage____1115636
    cd dreditor___triage____1115636
  7. Add dreditor to your sandbox to pull changed back
    git remote add dreditor 
    git remote show
  8. Grabbing from dreditor needs a branch name too. This fails
    git pull dreditor
    From * [new branch]      master     -> dreditor/master
     * [new branch]      vbo        -> dreditor/vbo
    You asked to pull from the remote 'dreditor', but did not specify a branch. Because this is not the default configured remote for your current branch, you must specify a branch on the command line.
  9. Follow along and add maser to the pull
    clemens$ git pull dreditor master
    From * branch            master     -> FETCH_HEAD
    error: Your local changes to 'dreditor.user.js' would be overwritten by merge.  Aborting.
    Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
  10. Do a stash for not losing changes ... blast ... it's now fuzzy
      515  git stash --help
      518  git stash branch autodiscovery # nope
      519  git branch autodiscovery
      520  git branch 
      521  git stash branch autodiscovery # nope
      524  git st
      525  git add dreditor.user.js 
      526  git stash branch autodiscovery # stashed ?!?
      529  git stash
