git clean -f -d

#track remote branch
git branch --track branch_name origin/master

estimate


Here is one way of how people estimate percent of completion - http://geekswithblogs.net/optikal/archive/2006/12/31/102381.aspx

I believe the general practice in my company is to take your estimate and triple it. Noone EVER complains that a project was completed too quickly. - http://discuss.joelonsoftware.com[..]iscussTopicParent=15151&ixDiscussGroup=3

McConnell: 25% isn't necessarily a bad number. What's bad about it is that the average project is something like 100% late and 100% over budget at the time it's shut down. With better development approaches, a lot of those projects would get shut down when they've used 20% of their budgets rather than 200% of their budgets.
http://blogs.cio.com/node/600

Schedule chicken , someone leave the responsiblity to other sliencely - http://www.stickyminds.com[..]ion=edetail&ObjectType=COL&ObjectId=7923

If you need to deliver software in 9 months, you could make a plan to deliver software in 9 months and hope it works. Or you could start delivering software every week. Maybe in the first week you aren't so good at it but after four weeks you and the rest of your team will be better. I call it the reduce risk by practicing technique. I can't believe how many people line up against me on this, even quality experts. - Ward Cunningham
