gh repo sync

Sync a repository

Synopsis

Sync destination repository from source repository. Syncing uses the main branch of the source repository to update the matching branch on the destination repository so they are equal. A fast forward update will be used execept when the --force flag is specified, then the two branches will by synced using a hard reset.

Without an argument, the local repository is selected as the destination repository.

The source repository is the parent of the destination repository by default. This can be overridden with the --source flag.
