Hi all, I have just started out using Git and I have a couple of questions.
Bear with me should the questions sound ridiculous or stupid even...
Say, in this repo of mine, there are 3 branches - master (main) and develop
So the contents in both develop01 and develop02 will be merged and pushed
1. If someone, lets call this person Mark... He committed and pushed a
change (itemE) into master as I stated below:
master - itemA, itemB, itemC, itemD
develop - itemA, itemB, itemC, itemD
master - itemA, itemB, itemC, itemD, itemE*
Though I did a git pull, there is no update seeing that develop is not
'touched'. When I tried to make some changes into develop - adding in itemF
(comitted and pushed the changes into develop only)
The contents are: develop - itemA, itemB, itemC, itemD, itemF
But as soon as I did a pull request, I was prompted with the warning *This
pull request can't be merged. You will need to resolve conflicts to be able
to merge* and it asked me to do the following steps:
git fetch origin master
git checkout develop
git merge FETCH_HEAD
git push origin HEAD
While I am doing so, in the git status, it is showing itemF as a new file
that needs to be committed.
Thus my question would be, does it means that both the contents/number of
items in my master and develop has to be the same?
2. Prior to my above question, does this means I will always need to do the
steps as I written above, before I can commit my changes into develop?
3. What are some of the preparatory steps/ other matter that I should have
take before I initiate a pull request? I asked this because though I always
did a git pull to update the branch I am working on, but at times if I am
prompted with similar or complicated scenarios again, I just feared I may
screwed up the overall repo or the initial branch itself. Any advises is
