Checkout a remote branch as new local branch #709
Thanks @eamodio for addressing this. Yes I would be happy with replacing the detached HEAD version with checkout as local (but tracking the remote obviously) by default. Indeed, this is the default behaviour of the Jetbrains IDEs (from where I'm switching to VSCode). The detached HEAD version is still useful, but we shouldn't have that as default, in my opinion.
