Hi

So I made a fork some weeks ago, and am trying to get up to speed on Windows. Some experience, using command-line git (although I wish I was using Tortoise or something):

My fork was well out of date but I cloned it anyway:

git clone https://github.com/YOUR-USERNAME/audacity

and got an 'audacity' dir

'cd audacity' and following https://help.github.com/articles/configuring-a-remote-for-a-fork/

git remote add upstream https://github.com/audacity/audacity

and then following the rest of the instructions in https://help.github.com/articles/syncing-a-fork/ I did

git fetch upstream

git checkout master

git merge upstream/master

and then pushed my changes https://help.github.com/articles/pushing-to-a-remote/

git push

and a username/password later my https://github.com/MartynShaw/audacity says "This branch is even with audacity:master"

So I appear to have my local version in sych with 'master'.

But how do I have a look at somebody else's fork, what the are doing?

It would be great if this page actually had instructions for novice win/git users like me.
