How to perform a pull request on GitHub

GitHubToday, I performed my first (insignifiant) pull request on GitHub, for an open-source project (akka-http, not to name it). Just to be sure to remember the steps I followed:

  • read the project contributing guidelines
  • on GitHub: fork the project
  • clone it
  • create a topic branch
  • modify required files
  • add, commit, push to my forked project
  • on GitHub, on the original-project page: create the pull request (I had signed the Lightbend CLA beforehand)
