I was trying to set up a Git project in Google Code, but did not seem able to push anything to their site with my regular

git push

Pulling seemed to work even less, giving me the following error:

[ward@hathor]$ git pull
Your configuration specifies to merge with the ref 'master'
from the remote, but no such ref was fetched.

I know, it is my own fault for not at least skimming through their FAQ beforehand. You see, the issue here is that when starting out, there is no branch on their end. So just push your master branch.

[ward@hathor]$ git push origin master

 * [new branch]      master -> master
[ward@hathor]$ git pull
Already up-to-date.

And everything should go a-ok (for now).
