I'm a total newb to git and Egit and have been frustrated by my |
inability to reproduce the Synchronize behavior that I've been using for
years with Eclipse's cvs and svn clients.
I cloned a GitHub repository a while back (using EGit) and imported the
project into Eclipse. Since then, I made some local changes (that I
don't really care about, no need to push them or anything like that),
but there have also been changes in the GitHub repository. What I need
is to preview the "incoming" changes that have been made in the remote
repo like I would do on a cvs project with Team > Synchronize With
I've tried Team > Synchronize... on the git project, but no matter what
I select in the resulting dialog, I never see any incoming changes. For
the "origin" repo, the only "Ref" choice seems to be "master," while for
<local.git> the "Ref" choices are "HEAD" and "master."
Can anyone give a step-by-step for how to reproduce the functionality of
cvs "Synchronize with Repository" for an EGit-managed project?
