I could not find a tutorial for all SourceTree commands so I'm somewhat unsure if this command does what I think it does.
I have a branch which was branched from master some time ago. Let's call it BranchX.
Master branch has remote origin/master and BranchX also has origin/BranchX.
Consider these two scenarios:
1) Now some people have done their work on BranchX and I want to merge BranchX into master. Currently I have checked out master branch.
Can I use the command "Pull origin/BranchX into current branch" to fetch origin/BranchX into my local repo and then merge BranchX code into my current working copy (which is master)?
2) I'm working on BranchX and I want to update it with latest changes on origin/master.
Can I use the command "Pull origin/master into current branch" to fetch origin/master into my local repo and then merge master code into my current working copy (which is BranchX)?
Essentially - is "Pull origin/branchname into current branch" meant as a replacement for so-often used process:
merge master into BranchX
Or does it do something different or something more than I think?
