Proper way to use other's DTH's & Smartapps through GitHub?

What is the proper way to add a device or app that someone else has published on GitHub? I know I can just copypasta the code but then if the original developer updates it I have to manually update it, not automatic updates.

Do I just need to fork each github repo under mine and then update those and then update my SmartThings IDE?

It isn’t actually automatic with GitHub integration either. However, it is much easier to tell when an update happens and what the changes were. Then you can manually select to update your app with a few clicks

Thanks, I failed at search this morning because I missed that FAQ. More coffee needed.
