2) What is the process to update a branch with all changes
master? I will need to do this because a lot of changes have
occurred since the 2.065 branches were created but the actual
betas are not yet prepared. Going forward, this is the only
time this will occur.
If branch does not have own commits to be preserved and needs
to just be synced with master state (assuming
D-Programming-Language remote is named `upstream`):
git fetch upstream # download current remote state
git checkout 2.065 # go to release branch
git reset --hard upstream/master # make it identical to
git push -f origin 2.065 # update own fork
git push -f upstream 2.065 # update branch in core repos,
I can't imagine any other case when one may want to update
release branch from master so it must the what you need.
Note that, at least phobos repository already has some own
commits in 2.065 branch.
So, technically, there has been already some release work ongoing
in that branch but now you want to restart it with new base?
git fetch upstream
git checkout 2.065
git rebase upstream/master # assumes it has common point with
master earlier in history
# resolve conflicts if any
git push -f origin 2.065 # any rewrite of history is likely
to require force push
git push -f upstream 2.065
