NAME

pram - (p)ull (r)equests made easy via git (am)!

DESCRIPTION

The pram utility assists Gentoo developers in merging contributions from the Gentoo Github repository in the Gentoo git repository.

Let 123 a pull request filed against the official Gentoo Github repository. pram retrieves this PR from the Github CDN as a patch using the HTTP protocol. pram then adds the necessary headers to close one or more Gentoo bug reports but also the PR automatically. pram then opens up the patch with $EDITOR for you to review it. Eventually, if you deem the contribution good enough and accept it, pram merges it using the git am command. Git is an essential part of the backend of pram for merging patches.

At Gentoo we are very opinionated. We are against merge commits. We think they add unnecessary clutter to the history of a git repository. We want to keep the history of the Portage tree as linear as possible. For this reason, we leverage the tools offered by Github to merge contributions as patches without compromising our standards.

Originally, pram was written to ease the triaging of Gentoo Github PRs and make it more convenient. Yet, it can be used to merge PRs from virtually any Github repository. Give it a try!

EXAMPLE

# GENTOO DEVELOPERS! Bear in mind that pram fetches pull requests from the
# Gentoo Github repository by default. You don't need to specify it.

# Fetch PR 123 and display it in emacs.
$ pram --editor emacs 123

# Fetch PR 456 and add a reference to the Gentoo bug report 101010.
$ pram --bug 101010 456

# Fetch PR 789 and close the Gentoo bug report 114499.
$ pram --closes 114499 789

# Fetch PR 994422 from the Github repository https://github.com/foo/bar.
$ pram --repository foo/bar 994422
