Only Push/Pull Current GIT Branch
With an installation of GIT on a new machine, the push/pull behavior I was used to has changed. I prefer that a push and pull only affects the current branch, not all of them.
To set this behavior, globally, run the following commands:
git config --global pull.default current git config --global push.default current
Now you won't have anymore surprise pushes of your not-quite-ready code from another branch.
