Pulling a PR in a git package

I would like to apply this PR within the prepare function of kodi-nexus-git.  In the past I would use something like this:

prepare() {
...
  git pull --no-edit origin pull/22897/head
}

Doing so here seems to pull in way more than the intended code spelled out in the PR.  What am I doing wrong?

Re: Pulling a PR in a git package

Download the patch as a source and apply it as a patch in prepare()?

Re: Pulling a PR in a git package

Applying the patch works but I would like to know why my git invocation is not behaving as I think it should and how to correct it.  I used with other PKGBUILDs successfully.  It has to be failing here because the PR is against master but the build is against other branch (Nexus).  What is the right syntax?

Example of it working in the kodi-git PKGBUILD.

Re: Pulling a PR in a git package

I suck at git, but a quick glance at the first paragraph of the man page gives a suggestion that looks like it should do what you want:

man git-pull (emphasis added) wrote:

If the current branch is behind the remote, then by default it will fast-forward the current branch to match the remote. If the current branch and the remote have diverged, the user needs to specify how to reconcile the divergent branches with --rebase or --no-rebase

Re: Pulling a PR in a git package

Thanks for the reply, Trilby.  Neither option works.

The --rebase option is angry due to commits pending it seems:

git pull --rebase origin pull/22897/head
error: cannot pull with rebase: You have unstaged changes.
error: please commit or stash them.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
    Aborting...

And --no-rebase seems to pull in way more changes than are scoped in the PR.  This is similar to how no specifying either behaves:

 git pull --no-rebase origin pull/22897/head

Re: Pulling a PR in a git package

I see you switched to git cherry-pick which I think is a better solution.  So just for reference I was not able to achieve what you wanted using git pull,  I had to split it into a fetch and a rebase:

git fetch origin pull/22897/head:pull/22897
git rebase --keep-base makepkg pull/22897

Thanks for the help, loqs. Good to keep that under your hat.
