how to change upstream on Github

I have 3 forks of the same project as 3 remotes in my local git.

  • Mainline – The Repo that was first created. Contains 278 commits after forking.
  • Upstream – Initial fork of Mainline. Freezed in time. [Last commit March 12, 2014]
  • DownStream – Forked from Mainline. Contains 150 commits after UpStream.

I am working on the repo Downstream. The Team maintaining Mainline refused to accept my PR. Hence I want to send a PR to Upstream and be able to send PRs to Upstream.

    To send a GitHub Pull Request you can either use the GUI app or from the browser. Unfortunately there still is no way to send a Pull Request via the CLI.

    Take a look at GitHub’s Pull Request page for all of the possible ways to send a PR.

    Most importantly when sending a PR upstream make sure you pull down any upstream changes and resolve any potential conflicts first.

    git remote add upstream git://
    git pull upstream master
