 git fetch # will bring the new branch
 git checkout -b arm-3.0-wip origin/arm-3.0-wip # will create a local
arm-3.0-wip, check it out
 # if you had local commits on your arm-3.0 branch...
 git merge arm-3.0
 # if you had local commits on some feature branch
 git merge myfeature

and the most important thing is
 git push origin arm-3.0-wip

so we get your code in the next build :-)
