I was working on a Git branch that was not up to date with changes I was doing on another branch.
So, I had to incorporate those changes. Given a Git branch that’s not up to date with another branch, how do you merge the changes?

git merge another-branch
This will create a merge commit, which will include all the differences between the 2 branches - in a single commit.
