I am not a git guru. My view would be that it's better to have
'matching' instead of 'tracking'.

This option makes sense for translatros if they are committing to a
branch, as well to master.
If you are translating evolution for branch gnome-2-30, you normally
want to commit the same translation to master.

Here is a workflow,
1. Update/Clone a repository, for example 'evolution'.

2. Checkout the 'gnome-2-30' branch with

$ git checkout --track origin/gnome-2-30
$ _

3. Add the translation and commit it,
$ git commit -m "Updated Greek translation for evolution documentation" el.po
[gnome-2-30 afa65e1] Updated Greek translation for evolution documentation
 1 files changed, 23 insertions(+), 131 deletions(-)
$ _

4. Checkout master.
$ git checkout master
Switched to branch 'master'
$ _

5. Cherry-pick the 'afa65e1' commit,
$ git cherry-pick afa65e1
Finished one cherry-pick.
[master 3c1c071] Updated Greek translation for evolution documentation
 1 files changed, 23 insertions(+), 131 deletions(-)
$ _

6. Finally, perform a 'git push' and send both commits to in one go,
$ git push
Counting objects: 14, done.
Delta compression using up to 2 threads.
Compressing objects: 100% (8/8), done.
Writing objects: 100% (8/8), 1.69 KiB, done.
Total 8 (delta 5), reused 0 (delta 0)
To ssh://simos git gnome org/git/evolution
   e8d32b7..afa65e1  gnome-2-30 -> gnome-2-30
   f84793e..3c1c071  master -> master
$ _

Both 'gnome-2-30' and 'master' succeeded, so we are fine.
Without 'push.default=matching', we would need to run 'git 'push'es
twice, once on each branch.

A. Because it breaks the logical sequence of discussion
Q. Why is top posting bad?
