And what about conflicts when syncing a forked repository?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Resolve merge conflicts

The documentation describes how to resolve conflicts when merging branches, but forgets to detail how to do this when syncing a forked repository with its master. A fetch on the forked repository wont pull in any commits of the master repository.

Should you add the master repository as a remote, merge manually and then push the forked repository back? Should you still sync afterwards?

1 answer

Verified on a test repository myself and adding the remote, merging manually and pushing seems to work without having to sync anymore.
