I have a project on github which has been forked (friendly!).

What is the best workflow to examine merge the commits in the fork?

Of course I can git clone it separately but it seems that way I will miss out on all the git branch etc goodness

Just set up the Fork as a remote, and Fetch it (not Pull which would merge it).

You will then see all of the forks data (assuming a full refspec for the fetch) under the 'remote's' branches.

It can take a sudden moment of realisation that remotes (rtb's) are actually local, and are just a convenient naming convention to keep our(*) little minds happy.


rtb - remote tracking branch :: a [local] branch which tracks a remote.
(*) YMMV ;-)
