I have forked a repo from say user1/repo1 to me/repo1.
Another user has forked the same repo from user1/repo1 to user2/repo1.
I have read access to both repo. I can confirm because i can open the code in browser. I have cloned the forked version of my repo to local.
Now i want to fetch changes from user2/repo1/branchA. user2/repo was not in my remote list. So i added it using
git remote add https://github.com/user2/repo1.git
git remote -v
and it shows the remote.Now when i am trying to fetch using
git fetch user2 git fetch user2 branchA git fetch user2/branchA
nothing works and i get fatal: repo not found
Also tried cloning the repo directly from link user2/repo1 to local using
git clone https://github.com/user2/repo1.git
but unable to do so. Github wont allow me to create a fork of another fork as i already have forked one version of the repo.
