Example text

It can be a great way to get a sense of the popularity for open source projects. By now you should have a good sense of how to get up to speed with a project by looking at the README file, commits, pull requests, issues, the pulse, and the Git‐ Hub graphs. In the next chapter we’ll look at how you can start to contribute to a project. 24 | Chapter 2: Viewing CHAPTER 3 Editing In this chapter we’ll look at how you can contribute to a project. We’ll start by looking at how to contribute to a project that you don’t have permission to push to by creat‐ ing a fork and a pull request.

It shows you the commit message, who made the change, and the changes that were introduced in that commit. Going back to the pull request in Figure 3-11, you’ll see that there is an option to merge the pull request. That option is visible only to the owner of the project or to anyone the owner has added as collaborators. If someone without those permissions was looking at the page, he would not be able to merge the pull request. For example, in Figure 3-13 I’ve logged in as another user, and when I view the same page, I don’t get the option to merge in the pull request, although I can still comment on it if I want.

For now, though, we’re going to look at how to collaborate effectively with your team using GitHub. 42 | Chapter 3: Editing CHAPTER 4 Collaboration In this chapter we’ll start by looking at how to collaborate directly on a single reposi‐ tory—without using forks. We’ll then take some time to look more deeply into collab‐ orating using pull requests, issues, and GitHub pages. While forks are a good way to accept contributions from people you don’t work with regularly, they are a bit too cumbersome for everyday use in a team that is working together closely.
