After running the last command, I get:
$ git checkout HornetQ_2_2_19_AS7_Final
Note: checking out 'HornetQ_2_2_19_AS7_Final'.
You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.
If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
git checkout -b new_branch_name
HEAD is now at e6b634d... 2.2.19.Final version
I didn't see any new files get synched, maybe it happened in the background, though I thought it might display something about synching the diffs...
Are the contents of the directory now "HornetQ_2_2_19_AS7_Final" or do I need to run something else?
maybe a git tutorial might be a good place to start .
all looks ok, you canu work in detached HEAD state as you wont be making any commits, you can now build it
