OK. got it ;) Just want to keep a clean line :D And another question: Is github allowing to do an automatic rebase for forks? E.g. I have forked geany-plugins into my namespace https://github.com/frlan/geany-plugins and want to keep it up to date. Do I need to to it locally with git remote --add etc. or is there any gui for?
