Old Git master prepares to die and calls his sons to the deathbed.
“Take these branches one-by-one, and break them.”
Sons obliged, effortlessly breaking the build in single branches.
“Now take the repo as a whole, every branch together, and break it.”
Sons took the whole repo and broke it.
“You idiots! You’ve ruined my metaphor”, said the old master, and merged himself with the remote “heaven”.
