Merging pulled changes in git
To learn to get the fetched changes into the current branch and working directory.
Step1:Merge the pulled changes into the local master branch
git merge origin/master
$ git merge origin/master Updating 6e6c76a..2faa4ea Fast-forward README | 1 + 1 files changed, 1 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
Step2:Check the README again
Now we should see the changes.
$ cat README This is the Hello World example from the git tutorial. (changed in original)
These are the changes. Although “git fetch” does not merge the changes, we can manually merge them from the remote repo.
Now let’s have a look at combining fetch & merge into a single command.
