Configuring Git branch to pull from origin/master

I found a very useful tip on StackOverflow for doing this.  The command to use is:

git branch --set-upstream master origin/master

This adds the following to your Git config file:

[branch "master"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/master
