To rename branch, you can use -m option of git branch.
Rename <oldbranch> to <newbranch>
$ git branch -m <oldbranch> <newbranch>
Rename current branch to <newbranch>
$ git branch -m <newbranch>
If <newbranch> exists, -M instead of -m must be used to force the rename to happen.
First, get remote branches up-to-date.
$ git fetch
$ git svn fetch # only if you have Subversion remote repository using git-svn
Show remote branches.
$ git branch -a
Show changes between current local branch and remote branch.
$ git diff remotes/origin/master
Show changes between current local branch and remote branch. (simple)
$ git diff --name-status remotes/origin/master
Show changes between current local branch and remote branch. (simple, Subversion repository)
$ git diff --name-status remotes/svn/trunk

I executed Repository.fetch_changesets using script/runner by cron to synchronize repositories of Redline with Git and I got an error below.
git: not found
I modified redmine/lib/redmine/scm/adapters/git_adapter.rb like below and it became OK.
#GIT_BIN = "git"
GIT_BIN = "/usr/local/bin/git"
※ On r4795, r4797, you can set scm_git_command to the path to Git in configuration.yml, so you no longer need such modification like above.
I also encountered an onother problem.
When the user who executes Redmine does not have permission for the Git repository directory (like xxx.git), Redmine shows "The entry or revision was not found in the repository." error on repository page.
$ sudo chmod o+rx xxxx.git
- If the repository is in a user's home directory (e.g. on gitosis or gitolite), you also have to do chmod o+x for the user's home directory.
