I agree that the original wording isn't clear but I'm not sure the new wording is any clearer. The paragraph is trying to explain how to fetch upstream changes when they happen. My initial thought was to say "Eventually the developer will do additional work in the upstream repository" but perhaps it is to early to start throwing around terms like upstream. Perhaps just saying "her repository" would be clearest. > > @@ -1811,8 +1811,8 @@ manner. > You can then import these into your mail client and send them by > hand.
