I’d like to know if there is a way to update all files in all branches at once?
In other words, let’s say that I have seven release branches, and each branch has one more file than the previous. For example, Release A has one file, Release B has two files, Release C has three files, etc… The new file is always the different one; Releases A and B share one file in common, Releases A, B, and C share two files in common, etc…
Is there a way for me to, for example, update a particular sentence in every file across all branches without manually making the change to every single one? This would add up to about 40 manual changes, all of which are the same.
This is even more relevant if I have to make several manual changes to each file in each branch.
Is it a good solution to merge one branch into another branch (which is not Master)? It doesn’t seem so. In other words, I created a branch (call it Pizza, for the sake of the argument) in the most current release (say June 2021) for changing one aspect of my documentation. Would it make sense to merge the Pizza branch into January 2021, November 2020, and August 2020 for example? Or is there a better way that GitHub already thought of?
