<h2>update</h2>

What do you do if you have changes out on a repository and
you want them merged with your checkout?

You use the <code>update</code> command, that's what.

<b>fossil</b> can <a href="about_checkout.wiki">overwrite</a> any
changes you've made to your checkout, or it can
<a href="about_merge.wiki">merge</a> whatever changes have occurred
in the repo into your checkout.

Update <em>merges</em> changes from the repository into your checkout.

<b>fossil</b> uses a simple conflict resolution strategy for merges:
the latest change wins.

Local intranet <code><a href="cmd_commit.wiki">commit</a></code>s
(by someone else)
or Net <code><a href="cmd_pull.wiki">pull</a></code>s from a server
will usually require a <code>fossil&nbsp;update</code> afterward.

Local commits are likely to be made with
<a href="cmd_settings.wiki#autosync">automatic syncing</a>
set to "on", however, so if you don't use <b>fossil</b> for Net-wide
projects you may never have to use <code>update</code>.
