Sorry I don’t know the correct terminology: Suppose there is a git repository by Alice, and Bob made a fork of it. Next, I made a fork of Bob’s fork. So the fork “lineage” is:
Alice -> Bob's fork -> my fork
Is there a way to change the plumbing so that my fork directly tracks Alice’s original repo instead of Bob’s fork? Like this:
Alice -> my fork
This way, I can choose to incorporate changes in Alice’s repo directly into my fork instead of waiting for Bob to incorporate them into his.
I know forking is more of a GitHub instead of a pure git concept, but if there’s a way to do this for generic git repositories I’d like to know, too! Thanks!
