  • If you commit, you only commit to your local repository. If you want to push your changes to the shared remote repository, you must first git pull, and then git push
  • If you wish to fetch, you use git pull
  • If there are things to merge, like changes to files by 2 persons, use git merge
  • every git command can be used with --help for basic help output
