GIT-REQUEST-PULL(1)                Git Manual                GIT-REQUEST-PULL(1)



NAME
       git-request-pull - Generates a summary of pending changes

SYNOPSIS
       git request-pull [-p] <start> <url> [<end>]


DESCRIPTION
       Generate a request asking your upstream project to pull changes into
       their tree. The request, printed to the standard output, begins with the
       branch description, summarizes the changes and indicates from where they
       can be pulled.

       The upstream project is expected to have the commit named by <start> and
       the output asks it to integrate the changes you made since that commit,
       up to the commit named by <end>, by visiting the repository named by
       <url>.

OPTIONS
       -p
           Include patch text in the output.

       <start>
           Commit to start at. This names a commit that is already in the
           upstream history.

       <url>
           The repository URL to be pulled from.

       <end>
           Commit to end at (defaults to HEAD). This names the commit at the tip
           of the history you are asking to be pulled.

           When the repository named by <url> has the commit at a tip of a ref
           that is different from the ref you have locally, you can use the
           <local>:<remote> syntax, to have its local name, a colon :, and its
           remote name.

EXAMPLES
       Imagine that you built your work on your master branch on top of the v1.0
       release, and want it to be integrated to the project. First you push that
       change to your public repository for others to see:

           git push https://git.ko.xz/project master

       Then, you run this command:

           git request-pull v1.0 https://git.ko.xz/project master

       which will produce a request to the upstream, summarizing the changes
       between the v1.0 release and your master, to pull it from your public
       repository.

       If you pushed your change to a branch whose name is different from the
       one you have locally, e.g.

           git push https://git.ko.xz/project master:for-linus

       then you can ask that to be pulled with

           git request-pull v1.0 https://git.ko.xz/project master:for-linus
