Step 1. Commit pending SFTP changes on DEV as appropriate.
Step 2. Pull database and files back from LIVE to DEV. (Before you do this review the commit log and look on dev under content to see if anyone has been working on it lately. If it looks like someone has recently been working on this site skip this step and DO NOT pull live back to dev.)

Step 4. Review DEV for updates and errors
Step 5. Run git pull
Step 6. Run ahoy total-update
