Description

This will be a very nice feature to have. Right now the users have to pull from the main repo and push to their personal forks.

If this feature is enabled, it will help them to synchronize their forks with ease.

Hi,

Thanks for this proposal. This is actually something we've been thinking for some time already. see https://issues.rhodecode.com/issues/2791.

Our thinking was ability to re-set the fork to the state that the fork origin is already in. Meaning pruning additional heads and commits.
What you described in this ticket already is actually possible. Simply edit your fork and set a pull remote url which points to the same rhodecode instance, this way from settings > remote you'll be able to pull the changes from the main repo.

Marcin Kuzminski [staff], lets try to get this into next release. You've been talking about this for some time

Daniel, I've already done this, thanks. However it would be great if RC can do this by itself.
