Checking out a PR branch for coding review
Add a contributor's remote:$ git remote add [REFERENCE_NAME] [email protected]:[CONTRIBUTOR_USERNAME]/[REPOSITORY].github.io.git
REFERENCE_NAME is usually a contributor's name, e.g. aaron, mild.
Then, fetch all branches of a contributor's remote.$ git fetch [REFERENCE_NAME]
Git will suggest a local branch and a tracking remote branch that you can checkout later without
-boption which you can't do in other cases"* [new branch] branch-name -> [REFERENCE_NAME]/branch-name
You can now checkout a new branch with:$ git checkout branch-name
This keeps a local branch on your computer.
You can also checkout a temporary branch with:$ git checkout [REFERENCE_NAME]/branch-name
