Here we walk through the process contributors should follow when testing open Pull Requests.

Testing a Single Pull Request

First thing you need to do is set up the Pull Request author’s fork as a remote in your local repository.

git remote add oybed

Then fetch the latest changes from that remote

$ git fetch oybed
remote: Counting objects: 298, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (58/58), done.
remote: Total 298 (delta 163), reused 213 (delta 153), pack-reused 75
Receiving objects: 100% (298/298), 38.23 KiB | 1.53 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (173/173), completed with 56 local objects.
 * [new branch]      docker-39      -> oybed/docker-39

Then check out the branch containing the Pull Request Changes.

$ git checkout oybed/docker-39

At this point, you have

Check out the branch that represents your Pull Request

git checkout gcp-3.9

Then rebase your branch on top of the other Pull Request’s branch:

git rebase oybed/docker-39
