And in more detail, it effectively

  1) runs git fetch to update the local copy of the relevant upstream

  2) removes all of your pending commits from the current branch,

  3) moves the current branch forward to match the local upstream copy
     that was just fetched,

  4) and then attempts to reapply all of the patches that were removed
     in step 2 to the updated current branch (i.e. the rebase).

If anything goes wrong with a patch in step 4, you'll be walked through
a resolution process (as with all rebases).  And at any point, if you
want to start over, you can run "git rebase --abort".

Hope this helps
