I did my initial clone on my laptop to get an initial feel for the Maven project on Netbeans.
From there I switched to my desktop with another clone.
I continued to work on my desktop with several commits.
I wanted to look again from my laptop. The only thing I had changed was the pom file, adding a local dependency. The files in the local repository were unchanged, so there was nothing to commit.
Even now my laptop claims “On branch “dev”: in sync with upstream branch”. It depends upon how you look at the situation if the claim is true or not. Since I haven’t changed anything on the laptop, it is true, but I have changed things on the desktop.
If I go Git -> Remote -> Pull from Upstream no change will be made to my source files.
What I would like see to happen is that they all get updated according to the changes I committed from my desktop, but I am missing something to make this happen.
