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


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


   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>.


       Include patch text in the output.

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

       The repository URL to be pulled from.

       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.


   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

   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
