I've got the basics of git, but I always seem to have problems if I  
do anything fancy.  I did 'git fetch' and 'git pull upstream dev' and  
then I could see 540dbcc with 'git log'.

I believe I then should have just done 'git branch 540dbcc' but I  
think at some point I deleted my branch and tried again.  Eventually  
I got the changes locally but when I tried to push them up, it said  
there was no remote branch.

I have since tried lots of things, eventually getting the message  
"Your branch is ahead of 'origin/dev' by 276 commits" (not sure how  
that happened).

I did 'rm -rf otp' and started fresh from the instructions on the web  
site to track a new branch, but I am still in the 276 commits ahead  
of dev mode and I now can no longer see 540dbcc.  'git remote -v'  
doesn't show 'pu' or any other branches, just origin and upstream.

Anybody have any advice how to get things back in sync?

lib/stdlib/src/stdlib.app.src  =>  add the following line after  

Also missing was my change to lib/stdlib/doc/src/ref_man.xml => add  
the following line after '<xi:include href="gen_server.xml">'
<xi:include href="gen_stream.xml">

The line of the failure is running rr(...)   I don't really see how  
gen_stream could have affected this.  I may be mistaken, but it isn't  
clear how the interaction could occur.
