Hello

There is another important command I am missing in EGit:

git pull origin master

How can I make a git pull from the master branch in EGit?

Thank you for the hint.

Michael

Hi,

"git pull" is not there because we don't have "git merge" yet. That's under developement ... but not yet available. I always switch for a minute to my native git implementation to do such operations.

Details
"git pull" is the same as "git fetch" plus "git merge". First you get the new stuff from the remote side (git fetch) and then you merge the new stuff with your local branch. If for example you have done modifications to your local branch then a full fledged merge is needed. This operation is not yet there in Egit.

I see. What native git implementation do you use?

And when will the merge function be available? The sooner the better :)

Depends on the operating system you are using, have a look here :

You may follow the review of the basic merge implementation here :
