Sync Git master with fork

I recently had to fork a branch in github and then I had to figure out how to keep the changes from the master in sync with the fork branch I had made. Turns out it is really simple.

First you have to add a remote to point to the original master:

git remote add upstream <repo-location>

then to keep it in sync just run the following commands:

git fetch upstream
git rebase upstream/master

And that is it.
