Basically, how do I issue this command from the GUI:
git fetch <remote> <rbranch>:<lbranch>
I would like to be able to right click on a local branch that is tracking a remote branch and click "fetch".
Am I missing something obvious?
Sorry, I missed the last part of your question. I have a local repo with two local branches that are tracking to remote branches. When the branch that I do not have checked out shows an available commit on the remote branch, I'd like to be able to right click on the local branch and fetch the changes:
I should also note that I am using the Windows version.
For these changes I don't really need to exclude some branches. I could see needing that in the future.
Also, the fetch button on the top doesn't work for me. The command completes. The full output says "Completed successfully" but afterwards it still shows that I am 1 commit behind, both in the indicator next to the local branch name and the history graph display.
I ended up launching the git terminal and typing in the command and the fetch works fine. That's what led me to the question "can I specifically fetch one branches changes from the GUI".
