Current missing PR step?


I just pushed my first bug-fix to ITK via github instead of Gerrit. After I did a git review-push --force the branch was present in fork but I could not a PR in the consortium repo - so I pressed the “Create PR” button on Github.

Should the PR have been created automatically? Did I manage to mess up my local repo setup? It wouldn’t be the first time.

Hi Tobias,
short answer is no. The PRs still need to be created manually. But the moment you push, GitHub suggests you to open it.

Also, when you push a topic, the ITK git hooks suggest you to open a PR, providing the id of the PR, and the complete URL.

Thanks for contributing !

@jhlegarreta is right – you did everything correctly. Congrats on your first pull request to the ITK GitHub repository! :octopus:

The patch modifies the file so this is clear for future contributors:

Just to complete what has been said and the guidelines, the ITK Git Sheet may be another useful resource when contributing.
