Our task is to re-synchronise a branch with updates that have been made to the main branch of the repository.
git fetch origin main:main git merge main
Here, origin is an alias on our local computer for the remote repository.
Following this up with a push merges back to the remote repository’s version of the branch. The commits are those that were committed by others to the remote repository’s main branch.
git checkout main git pull git checkout kayon/validator git merge main
We could skip the first two steps and merge from
origin/main to effect a merge from the remote main into the current
local branch. This will not update the local copy of main.
git checkout kayon/validator git merge origin/main
