Today I had to merge changes from one repository into another. Let’s assume you
want to merge
Operations are performed in repo alpha:
git remote add beta_repo firstname.lastname@example.org:beta.git git fetch beta_repo git merge beta_repo/master
In this case,
beta_repo is the name you pick for remote.
If you just need to cherry-pick a certain commit from
beta you can omit the
last step and replace it with the cherry-pick.
