What would you like to do?
Forking a Github repo to Bitbucket
Go to Bitbucket and create a new repository (its better to have an empty repo)
git clone git@bitbucket.org:abc/myforkedrepo.git
cd myforkedrepo
Now add Github repo as a new remote in Bitbucket called "sync"
git remote add sync git@github.com:def/originalrepo.git
Verify what are the remotes currently being setup for "myforkedrepo". This following command should show "fetch" and "push" for two remotes i.e. "origin" and "sync"
git remote -v
Now do a pull from the "master" branch in the "sync" remote
git pull sync master
Setup a local branch called "github"track the "sync" remote's "master" branch
git branch --set-upstream github sync/master
Now push the local "master" branch to the "origin" remote in Bitbucket.
git push -u origin master
