Push is not the right operation for what you are trying to do. Your first two steps are correct. Picking up from there:

3. Checkout the "develop" branch.
4. Merge branch "x" into your current branch ("develop").
5. If the merge doesn't commit automatically, resolve conflicts then commit. 

The Push operation is designed to take the changes you've made to a local branch, and copy them to the remote version of the same branch. You can technically push changes to a different branch, but it is still pushing to the remote version of the branch you chose. I've never done this, so I don't know the details of how it works. 

So, if i want to add any new file into develop branch from my local "ABC" folder  then what are the steps involve:

Can you please explain me.

i appreciate your help on this.


Thank you 

1) Checkout the develop branch 2) Make the changes you want to make 3) Commit the changes 4) Push you local develop branch to remote If you haven't yet, check out the documentation at Pay extra attention to Sections 1.1 - 1.3 and Chapters 2 and 3
