How to keep your forked project updated with the main project ?


# Add the remote, call it "upstream":

git remote add upstream https://github.com/whoever/whatever.git

# Fetch all the branches of that remote into remote-tracking branches,
# such as upstream/master:

git fetch upstream

# Make sure that you're on your master branch:

git checkout master

# Rewrite your master branch so that any commits of yours that
# aren't already in upstream/master are replayed on top of that
# other branch:

git rebase upstream/master

#If you don't want to rewrite the history of your master branch, (for # example because other people may have cloned it) then you should # replace the last command with However, for making further pull    # requests that are as clean as possible, it's probably better to # rebase.
git merge upstream/master.
