In your machine
Let's say your code is already pointed to the new repository (Bitbucket), so need to add the old one:
git remote add github firstname.lastname@example.org:user/repo.git
Note to change the
repo values with yours.
This will add the repository with the name
github for this example.
Merge in your current local branch
In order to merge a remote branch to your current local branch, just run:
git pull github master
This will merge your current local branch with the remote
master branch at Github repository.
How to remove the link to the old repository
When you're done and want to remove the link to the old repository at Github, just run:
git remote remove github
