Your repo = origin = your fork on github
Pma repo = upstream = https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin.git

You will be interacting with both from your local copy. You fetch from 
upstream (new changes from other developers), then you push to origin. 
That way your fork will be up-to-date with changes in upstream.
