There are three branches that appear on the GitHub UI (X, Y, and master). But SourceTree shows me SomeOldBranch and master. I have tried every sequence of fetching, refreshing remote status, and checkout that I can think of. It never gives me the option to checkout either of the new branches X or Y.
Is it possible to force SourceTree to get the list of branches available on the remote? (Something like "git ls-remotes --heads")
I have been trying to check out this new branch for a few hours now. I keep hoping that SourceTree will just work, like it has in the past, but it must be stuck in the past.
I have a workaround, but still don't know what the actual problem was.
Cloning the repository into a different local tree works, and fetching data in that second tree also works. It seems the first tree was hosed in some way. I don't know if the problem was git, github, or ST. Sorry for the forum noise :(
The problem is muffled for now, since I found a workaround, but I am curious what was going on. So, treat this as low-priority :) I can mail you a tarball if you like. Here is a gist that compares the horked and working versions of the trees. https://gist.github.com/johnsogg/7fe36aeda500e99e0e3c
This is most likely something to do with my own lack of git-fu.
