Git: How to merge local branch with remote tracking automatically without fetching
Imagine, I have several branches: master, a, b, c ...
Now I'm in master branch and "git pull". This fetches all changes from remote server into origin/master, origin/a, origin/b ... branches and merges CURRENT branch (master) with origin/master. But then I want to switch to A branch and again merge these remote changes from remote tracked branch, WITHOUT fetching changes again (as they already are in origin/a branch).
Is there some simplier way to do this not specifying exactly remote branch I track (i.e. automatically) ?
