Hi JD,

No problem, we're still getting used to the new way of doing things with Git.

You should only ever use the master branch, that's the most up-to-date release 
of InterMine. Currently that is release 1.1 (beta).

Here's the docs on what to do:


The InterMine developers here in Cambridge work off of the dev branch with 
occasional other branches made for certain bugs or features. We also make a 
branch for the release candidate (eg. release-intermine-1.1), this branch is for 
beta testing and will be deleted next week when we make the formal 1.1 release.

If you want to start working off of 1.0 instead of 1.1, you can check out the 
latest 1.0 tag:
