Hi, thanks for this convenient script

my current issue is the git address is not github but git.corp

seems like the local_repo is not the one it should to be

there's no main_project or any properties defined in context.rb

the config file is exactly same as a common git project except the git suffix

what's wrong with it?

[remote "origin"]
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
    url = git@git.corp.mycorp.com:user/project.git
[branch "master"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/master
#<struct Hub::Context::LocalRepo 
    @cache={"config --get alias.pull-request"=>nil, "rev-parse -q --git-dir"=>".git", 
        "remote -v"=>"origin\tgit@git.corp.mycorp.com:user/project.git (fetch)\n
                                 origin\tgit@git.corp.mycorp.com:user/project.git (push)\n
                                 upstream\tgit@git.corp.mycorp.com:MainDB/project.git (push)",
        "config --get-all hub.host"=>nil,
         "symbolic-ref -q HEAD"=>"refs/heads/abranch", 
         "rev-parse --symbolic-full-name abranch@{upstream}"=>nil
dir="local path of project">
Aborted: the origin remote doesn't point to a GitHub repository.

hub requires the url as git@github.com/xx ?

See "GitHub Enterprise" section in hub help hub. I presume that "git.corp.mycorp.com" is a GH Enterprise installation? Then you have to do:

git config --global --add hub.host git.corp.mycorp.com

sorry to bother u

yes, it's a GH Enterprise, the host is added.

and, i run the cmd by a headless account and using ssh key

sudo -u someAccount git pull-request

it always prompt me

the origin remote doesn't point to a GitHub repository

and if i gonna use git pull-request directly, enter my headless account of Git and ssh keys, it will prompt HTTP 403

OK, if you think you're doing everything right, let's see if this is a bug. But I need more info:

  • what is a "headless" account?
  • git config --global --get-all hub.host (you can anonymize results) for the system user who's running hub commands?
  • cat ~/.config/hub (you should anonymize results) for the system user who's running hub
  • what do you mean by "if i use git pull-request directly"?
  • can you paste the full GitHub 403 error?

My guess here is that, because you're using multiple Unix and/or GitHub accounts, you have configured hub.host for the Enterprise host for the wrong system user.

Closing due to lack of info
