Git merge 2 versions
So I have a project on which me and another guy, are doing our thing. We are using 'git' for version control. Now, he has his own branch "version2" and I have my branch "version 1". We both have committed and pushed our versions to the repo but now how do we merge our projects together?
What I did was pulled his version on my system using
git clone https:url.git -b version2 in a new directory. Then I tried to checkout to my branch(version1) and merge version2 to it but it said
nothing to commit (working directory clean).
Then I tried
git pull https:url.git but I got
Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result.
So this is what I am trying to do. David and Alice pull from origin, do their thing and now to continue both their work they need to synchronise their versions.
