Create Multiple Forks of a GitHub Repo

Published: 18 Dec 2015 Category: linux_study

Step-1: Clone the original repo to your local machine

git clone caffe-yolo

cd caffe-yolo

Step-2: Create a new empty repo in your GitHub account

Step-3: Manually create the necessary remote links

git remote -v

Step-4: Rename origin to upstream and add our new empty repo as the origin

git remote rename origin upstream
git remote add origin
git remote -v

Step-5: Push from your local repo to your new remote one

git push -u origin master



(In step-4 the author use a SSH method to “git remote add” while I can only use HTTPS method to finally succeed)
