If you think that you've found an error in this book, please let us know about it. You will find any confirmed erratum below, so you can check if your concern has already been addressed.On page 52:
Shouldn't the commits c2b9e and 87ab2 be reversed?
From Fig 3-8, c2b9e is the commit to which the testing branch points; if I then checkout master (which points to c2b9e's parent commit), make changes and commit them, i should then have a new commit (i.e., 87ab2).
But being new to git, maybe I've misunderstood.
