GIT: Branching

To create a branch for some development work in git is really easy.
First clone an existing repository like described here.

In the new directory simple execute: git branch newbranch.
However, if you execute git status you will see that you are still on the master branch or the other branch you worked before (then the question is how did you get there
Execute git checkout newbranch an d git status will show you that you are now working on branch .
In order to push this information to another repository or a git server, git push per se will not do the trick. First you need to execute git push origin newbranch and now your branch is committed to the other repository.
