Also you can set default upstream for your push, by:
git push -u remote branch, i.e.: git push -u origin master.

So every next time, you have to push in short way git push.


That is true, though when you clone a repo the default upstream is normally set to origin master. This is useful if you want to work on a different remote branch.

When I push a branch that I want to make into a pull request, I normally do git push -u origin new-branch which allows me to easily make updates to that branch.

Thanks for adding the tip!
