The following scenario is given:
1) upstream maintainer creates topic branch "ABC_branch"
2) my fork doesn't contain this new branch yet (neither locally nor on GitHub)
How can I add (clone or download, what ever) the new ABC_branch to my local repository without touching my local master or any other existing branch?
Thank you for being here!
git rebase in its simplest form is a command which will “port” another branch (Branch A) into the branch where you are currently working (Branch B), by applying all of your unique commits from Branch B on top of Branch A and replacing Branch B with this revised version. That way, you can “catch up” to other branches by re-writing git history in your local git.
