Next, we can now push from the cloned repository we just created.
First, add the bold text below to the
sample.txt file in the newly cloned directory and commit the change.

When the history log of your local repository branch updates, it will be ahead of the remote repository branch.
Now push the new commit to the remote repository.
Right-click on the directory “tutorial2″ and click “Push.”
Click “OK” to proceed to the next screen.
Click “OK” again.
The following screen shows the push in progress. Once it is complete, click “Close” to finish.
Select “TortoiseGit” > “Show log” from the right-click menu. Now
origin/main are on the same level. That means the remote repository is now updated with the latest change and in sync with the local repository.
You will now find the newly pushed commit listed under “Recent Updates” on Backlog’s Git page.
In the next section, we will cover branches in greater detail, but this is now the location that each of the following references points to:
- origin/main: Points to the main branch of
origin, which is typically the remote repository.
- origin/HEAD: Refers to the current commit of
origin, i.e., the remote repository. In most cases, the local repository will point to the same location as
origin/HEADwhen performing a clone (the equivalent of
origin/main). However, this won’t be the case if you check out to a different remote branch.
- main: Points to the main branch of the local repository.
