4.5.1 Rebasing A Local Branch

For purely local branches, bringing your branch up to date is called rebasing, which causes the branch to look as if you had started from the latest version of master. The steps are as follows:

$ git checkout master                Checkout master
$ git pull                           Update it
$ git checkout feature/python        Move back to new, purely local branch
$ git rebase master                  “Start over” from current master
