Using hub

Github has a feature to attach a pull request to an existing issue using the hub command line tool. You can get hub here: 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>

Replace <issue number> with the issue number you want to tag the pull request onto.

For example:

 hub pull-request -i 63
