I have a cloned project from a master branch from remote repository
remote_repo. I create a new branch and I commit to that branch. Other programmers pushed to
remote_repo to the master branch.
I now need to rebase my local branch
How to do this? What commands to type to a terminal?
First fetch the new master from the upstream repository, then rebase your work branch on that:
git fetch origin # Updates origin/master
git rebase origin/master # Rebases current branch onto origin/master
Update: Please see Paul Draper's answer for a more concise way to do the same - recent Git versions provide a simpler way to do the equivalent of the above two commands.
