I made a Pull Request for a GitHub project but it was rejected because of some changes which were recommended to me. Now I can see that after my pull request there are others request which are made and merged. My question is what are the exact steps I should do to be sure that my local clone is up to date with all the other stuff going on the real repo. These are the steps I did:
- Forked a GitHub project
- Cloned it locally
- Created a topical branch
- Made a few changes
- Committed and pushed the changes
- Then from GitHub I pressed the Pull Request button and my Pull Request was on the list of requests (so basically everything was successful).
git pull origin master inside my branch and it said that everything is up to date. I run
git checkout master and did the last step and the output was the same - everything is up to date but I can see that there are other merged request after mine. My suggestion is that this is because I fork the repo.
So reading about syncing a fork with the original repo are the steps described here https://help.github.com/articles/syncing-a-fork/ what I need in this situation?</div
