I work on a project that has 2 branches, A and B. I typically work on branch A, and merge stuff from branch B. For the merging, I would typically do:
git merge origin/branchB
However, I would also like to keep a local copy of branch B, as I may occasionally check out the branch without first merging with my branch A. For this, I would do:
git checkout branchB git pull git checkout branchA
Is there a way to do the above in one command, and without having to switch branch back and forth? Should I be using
git update-ref for that? How?
