How to see remote changes before doing Git Pull

GIT Fetch downloads the latest change to the local repository while GIT Merge merges the remote content refs and heads to new local merge commit. so you can say the below is same : GIT Pull <remote> -or- GIT Fetch <remote> GIT Merge origin/master So lets begin with the steps on how to see the remote (origin/master) changes before doing Git Pull :  Git fetch origin Git log master..origin/master Git diff master..origin/master Git pull / Git merge origin/master Happy Leaning!
