Commit on Pull Request of Remote Fork
Someone recently forked a repository I am an owner of, created a feature branch, pushed several commits, and created a pull request to merge his forked branch into
master — a typical git workflow.
Is there a way that I can commit on his PR feature branch? I like the PR he created, but I want to make a few changes before I merge it into
- How to Do a Complicated Git Repository Merger?
- Automatically publish git projects to github
- Permanently deleting a git tag in a multi-user project
- GitHub Api download zip or tarball link
- Creating folders inside github.com repo without using Git
- How to update charts in HighCharts realtime in iOS
This seems like an elementary question, but I can’t find the documentation for this anywhere.

One option is to perform the merge locally, rather than via the GitHub web ui.
Follow these instructions to check out the pull request locally, and then you can
git merge it into any branch you want.
Just checkout his branch. Do you changes in that code. Commit your code in that branch.
That pull request will automatically update with your changes. Now you should be able to merge that code.
