GIT-REQUEST-PULL(1)		  Git Manual		   GIT-REQUEST-PULL(1)

NAME
       git-request-pull	- Generates a summary of pending changes

SYNOPSIS
       git request-pull	[-p] <start> <url> [<end>]

DESCRIPTION
       Generate	a request asking your upstream project to pull changes into
       their tree. The request,	printed	to the standard	output,	begins with
       the branch description, summarizes the changes and indicates from where
       they can	be pulled.

       The upstream project is expected	to have	the commit named by <start>
       and the output asks it to integrate the changes you made	since that
       commit, up to the commit	named by <end>,	by visiting the	repository
       named by	<url>.

OPTIONS
       -p
	   Include patch text in the output.

       <start>
	   Commit to start at. This names a commit that	is already in the
	   upstream history.

       <url>
	   The repository URL to be pulled from.

       <end>
	   Commit to end at (defaults to HEAD).	This names the commit at the
	   tip of the history you are asking to	be pulled.

	   When	the repository named by	<url> has the commit at	a tip of a ref
	   that	is different from the ref you have locally, you	can use	the
	   <local>:<remote> syntax, to have its	local name, a colon :, and its
	   remote name.

EXAMPLE
       Imagine that you	built your work	on your	master branch on top of	the
       v1.0 release, and want it to be integrated to the project. First	you
       push that change	to your	public repository for others to	see:

	   git push https://git.ko.xz/project master

       Then, you run this command:

	   git request-pull v1.0 https://git.ko.xz/project master

       which will produce a request to the upstream, summarizing the changes
       between the v1.0	release	and your master, to pull it from your public
       repository.

       If you pushed your change to a branch whose name	is different from the
       one you have locally, e.g.

	   git push https://git.ko.xz/project master:for-linus

       then you	can ask	that to	be pulled with

	   git request-pull v1.0 https://git.ko.xz/project master:for-linus
