How to rename the branch name
ood-name on the remote git server?
You may change the remote git server’s branch name as follows.
$ git checkout ood-name # check out the branch $ git branch -m old-name # change local branch name # push local old-name to remote ood-name and change the remote branch name $ git push origin :ood-name old-name
If everything went well, the remote branch should have been changed accordingly.
