Hi everyone,

We're all in the process of getting to know Git. It would be helpful if everyone is running roughly the same version of Git so we can share experiences without worrying about variations between versions.

Can you all check your installed version of Git ("git --version" from the command line) and make sure you're using the 1.7.x line? We learned yesterday that, at very least, versions prior to 1.6.5 lack some convenient extra sugar when handling remote branches. Confusing!
