Hi Thilina,

Your command adds your fork of phpmyadmin as a remote repo. I
assume you want to get the latest changes from the phpmyadmin
official repo. So you first have to add the remote phpmyadmin repo:
   git remote add upstream git://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin.git
For getting the latest updates from there, you should use:
  git pull upstream [branch] (or git fetch as you mentioned).

And finally, if you want to push the changes to your fork, then you first
have to create your fork and add it as a remote repo:
   git remote add origin git://github.com/thilinaa/phpmyadmin.git
Then, you push with
   git push origin [branch]

You can also find more details at [0] and [1].
