How to merge someone's fork of your gist into your gist
I created a gist, then someone else forked it and improved it. With a full repository, I might get their improvements in a pull request. But that isn't availabe for gists.
This is how to get their changes into my gist.
Clone your own gist
git clone email@example.com:YOUR_GIST_ID_GOES_HERE.git
Rename your gist's git folder for easy reference
See https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000846.htm for your OS
rename "YOUR_GIST_ID_GOES_HERE" "gisty-mcgistface"
Change directory to go into that folder
Add their gist as a branch
git remote add THEIRUSERNAME firstname.lastname@example.org:THEIR_GIST_ID_GOES_HERE.git git fetch THEIRUSERNAME git checkout -b THEIRUSERNAME-master THEIRUSERNAME/master
Switch back to your master branch
git checkout master
Merge their gist into yours
git merge THEIRUSERNAME-master
Push the newly merged gist back to GitHub
