Create a Pull Request

Let’s create a fork of the PyTorch project first, but this procedure is the same for any other project.

1. You just need to click a button [Fork].

and you will be redirected to github.com/USERNAME/pytorch.

Once redirected:

2. Clone the repo where you were redirected

git clone https://github.com/dejanbatanjac/pytorch.git pytorch-fork
cd pytorch-fork

3. Setup the fork to track upstream

Click the [Clone or download] button

You will have HTTPS or SSH options:

git remote add upstream https://github.com/pytorch/pytorch.git
# or ...
git remote add upstream git@github.com:USERNAME/pytorch.git

Now if you issue a command git config -l you should have remote.upstream.url set. You can check the same with git remote -v that will return at this point:

pytorch-fork>git remote -v
origin  https://github.com/USERNAME/pytorch.git (fetch)
origin  https://github.com/USERNAME/pytorch.git (push)
upstream        https://github.com/pytorch/pytorch.git (fetch)
upstream        https://github.com/pytorch/pytorch.git (push)

After day or two you will notice, your fork will be behind the master.

So what to do?

4. Make it even

cd pytorch-fork
git checkout master
git fetch upstream
git checkout master
git merge --no-edit upstream/master
git push

5. Create a branch and add your updates

git checkout -b new-branch
git push --set-upstream origin new-branch

6. Push your updates to origin

git commit
git push

7. Create a Pull request
