I have a followup question to the following thread.
Why is there a drop down menu for the selection of a remote branch? In what situation would you want o have a local branch be named differently from the remote? Is that more of a GIT issue that GIT allows that, and source tree is just implementing the behavior that GIT allows or is there some other reason for this? I don't understand why a workflow would ever lead to that situation. It seems to me that doing that would only lead to significant confusion. The merge comments would use the local branch name so if you push do different remote then I don't see how that would be a useful thing to do.
It's just full implementation of Git functionality.
This guy has one simple real-world example (though it still seems like a dangerous practice to me): http://blog.supermatter.com/post/761870270/git-push-a-local-branch-to-a-different-remote-branch
