Re: Update a fork for DLA publishing


Thank you. I have added this information (with some rephrasing) to the wiki.

I use the term rebase to update a branch from something else. I
realize that this is not the git term. From your answer I realize that
I have looked for the wrong solution. I have looked on how to update
the master branch in my fork, while the solution is to branch off from
a different branch instead.

Best regards
