Did I get this right?

Solved! Go to Solution.

I want to fork a third party project in my private repository, store my new modifications in a "dev" branch and keep the repository up to date with the upstream commits.



  1. git clone <url>
  2. git branch dev
  3. git checkout dev



  1. git fetch
  2. git checkout dev
  3. git rebase upstream/master


Is this correct?
