Updating a GitHub forked repository

Mostly a reminder to self but thought I'd post the link in case anyone else is looking for this.  More pointers the merrier.

Simple, straight forward steps to synchronise a forked repository with its upstream repository and keep it up to date.


Syncing a fork

Sync a fork of a repository to keep it up-to-date with the upstream repository.
Following these simple steps enables a forked repository to be easily and regularly updated with changes from the upstream repository.

Take care to read the final tip in the guide that notes that the steps only update a local copy - the fetch and merge changes still need to be pushed back to the GitHub remote repository.
Tip: Syncing your fork only updates your local copy of the repository. To update your fork on GitHub, you must push your changes.
