Hello everyone,

This mail is about my progress so far in integrating GitHub and few doubts/questions about how to do stuff.


Show GitHub Pull Request comments on b.p.o. [1] - Issue and review comments will be added to the linked b.p.o issue. Only one comment will be posted over 30 minutes. 


Converting patches to pull requests - First, let me tell you all my approach and questions that I have. Please let me know if you have better ways to do this.

We need to have a git binary on b.p.o server and when a patch is uploaded, we run a series of git commands from roundup to apply the patch, commit using contributor's credentials, push the new branch and finally create a new pull request using GitHub API.


1. How should we inform the contributor about the newly created PR? (S)he won't get subscribed to it automatically as the PR is created using API. 

A mention in the issue and in a GitHub comment should be enough.

2. What should we do an issue affects multiple versions? Should we open multiple pull requests against each branch?

We have not decided how we want to handle this in the workflow.

3. There can be different patches for 2.7 and 3.x versions. Currently, there's no way of determining which patch is for which branch. So, it would be difficult to create a new pull request.

Yep, that's tricky.

Looking forward to what you guys think.

Obviously what you work on is between you and Maciej, Anish, but I view this feature as low-priority. To me the two most important things are tying a pull request to an issue (I know you added a field but we will also need some GitHub web hook that will detect an issue in a PR title and automatically make the connection), and leaving a comment on an issue once a commit lands that mentions an issue in the commit message (like we currently do w/ hg).

​Thanks Brett. I have already submitted an initial patch for linking a pull request to an issue using GitHub web hooks. :) ​
