Hi Dave,

Re: your github cake repo…… could you either a) merge cobalt into master and trash the cobalt branch…which will be merge hell… or don’t even bother about the merge and do  ‘git checkout master; git reset —hard cobalt; git push -f’  ‘cos I really don’t give two hoots about rewriting history.  Or b) tell github that cobalt is the main branch.

There have been a few instances where people have cloned cake & tc repos, assumed master is the place to be and ended up with…. something that doesn’t work.  Arguably I don’t care what is done… but the naive user shouldn’t have to ‘git checkout cobalt’ to get something that works.

Waits for screams. ;-)
