I want to setup Elastic Beanstalk for my existing rails application.
I was successful in doing the sample foo app.
These are the questions I have
I need the deployment to happen from my git repository and not from my local path where I am deploying. How do I do that for the sample foo app.
The git aws.push command seems to deploy on the new ec2 instance. However, it did not push the changes to my git repository. Should I do a git push separately before doing a git aws.push ? Notice that my branch is ahead by 1 commit when I do a git status. Does aws maintain a separate git repository ? How can I get it to use my git repository instead ?

Below is the result of just a git push.

Separately, I need to have a before_symlink deploy hook. How can I do this ?
