Github question
« on: December 25, 2014, 10:37:54 PM »

I forked this https://github.com/bytemaster/bytemaster.github.io  to point out typos. But my fork does not contain the newest posts so I can not submit pull requests for them. How can I make sure that my fork has the newest posts? I clicked on "fork" while being on the link above but that just directed my to my own fork that is not up to date anymore...

Pull the changes in from the upstream repository?
git pull <repo url>

Thanks for the hint.
That https://help.github.com/articles/merging-an-upstream-repository-into-your-fork/ sounds like a solution. Do I need to download a client for this or can I simply work on the github website?

Can't do it through the website. You can use the GH but I recommend just use the normal git CLI, again it is just a simple "git pull <URL>"
