Updating a forked repository

When your fork is out of sync with the original repo

# Add new remote upstream repository
git remote add upstream https://github.com/ORIGINAL_OWNER/ORIGINAL_REPOSITORY.git

# Sync your forked repository
git fetch upstream
git checkout master
git merge upstream/master

# Alternatively, update local copy
git pull
