Github has a feature to attach a pull request to an existing issue using the
hub command line tool. You can get hub here: https://github.com/defunkt/hub. Search for standalone on that page.
Once you have hub stick it in your exec path and you are good to go.
Next time you issue a pull request you do it on the command line using the following command:
hub pull-request -i <issue number>
<issue number> with the issue number you want to tag the pull request onto.
hub pull-request -i 63
