It was rather an awkward moment when I showed my students my new GitHub Classroom assignment. I ‘accepted’ the assignment link, cloned the ‘student’ repo, worked, and started to create a pull request to a branch I’d created a week prior on the master repo. GitHub told me that “the commit histories are entirely different.” Opening the Git GUI, my branch did indeed seem to be completely disconnected. Huh?
I think this may have been due to ‘enable feedback’ on my classroom repository. Can someone confirm?
