I'm the sole developer on our Moodle VLE and currently use git to keep my local development and production server in sync. I forked the moodle repo and then created a branch "MyPD" and in that branch, i've added a number of plugins, my theme etc. I've not changed any core code. I then push this back up to the remote and when I update it I just pull the lastest version of my branch down to the production server.
This has worked fine while I'm not trying to upgrade the version of Moodle, but can someone tell me how I could go about upgrading the version of Moodle in this situation? The version is currently 3.5.2 but I want to move to 3.7 . If I just check out the 3.7 branch I'll lose all the plugins that i've installed.
Thanks for any help.
