Note that since you are likely not a maintainer of the Git repository GitHub will automatically 'Fork' the project into your personal GitHub account. A fork is just an exact copy of the repository in your own account so that you have total access to make edits. You are now 'editing' a copy of the project in your own GitHub account. You can always find it again by looking at your GitHub Repositories in your GitHub Profile (drop-down from your name in top right). Image of Automatic Fork message on Github

  1. You can click the Preview changes link to see what the changes will look like.
  2. Once you are satisified with your work you submit a Pull Request which asks the maintainer of the main repository (known as Upstream) to pull your edits up. To submit a Pull Request you navigate back to the main repository,, and click the '''New pull request''' button. You will then request your edits to be pulled up into the main repo. Make sure to click the compare across forks link since you are request a pull from the edits you made that reside in your own personal repsitory. To learn more about pull requests and forking, see
