I've invested some more time now,
have created 2 local branches for
the 2 features/issues and commited
the changes to my local repo.

I'm still confused about this line:

	git push origin HEAD:refs/for/<release-branch>/<topic>

Why can't I just use something like this:

	git push origin master

Any why do I need the "HEAD:" part?

Why not:

	git push origin <release-branch>/<topic>

What exactly is the refs directory for?
Is it comparable to tagging in subversion?
(So I'm also a total newbee in SVN too.)

Thanks a lot,
