Hello again,

After playing around with the github3.py library, I'm pretty impressed.

I do have another question.  If I make the request to list the pull requests in my repo with the code below, I get just the name of the pull request.  When I use the native get call exposed by the GitHub API, it returns JSON data that I can iterate through.  Any clues on how to return JSON using the library.  I've imported the JSON module, but I'm not having any luck in getting JSON returned.

#!/usr/bin/env python
from pygithub3 import Github
import requests
import json
import sys

auth = dict(login="xxxxx",user="xxxxx",token="xxxxxxx",repo="my-repo")
gh = Github(**auth)


pr = gh.pull_requests.list().all()
print pr
