Pull Requests for orphan branch

I’m working with a friend on a little project hosted at github.

What is special about this project is that we would like to use lots of orphan branches. But it seems we can’t do pull request for such branches!?

  • Securing files in git repository
  • Git path to match any directory name
  • Version numbering / release mechanics with Maven and GitHub
  • Accidentally pasted a file on my main git directory
  • change the data directory gitlab to store repos elsewhere
  • Python not working in the command line of git bash
  • Github complains that the branches don’t have a common history (which of course is true).

    So the question is: How do I ‘copy/pull’ a complete orphan branch from one repository to another?

  • Cannot do git-svn fetch behind proxy
  • Is there a way to use review board with git without manually uploading diffs through the web interface every time?
  • How can I alter the build number from jenkins by applying a system property?
  • Using Git branches to maintain subdomains of a website
  • How to enable Git terminal begin with home directory in Windows?
  • cloning a repo from github
  • One Solution collect form web for “Pull Requests for orphan branch”

    I don’t see how a pull request could work, but here is what you can do:

    • Clone the target repository to your local computer.

    • create and checkout a new orphan branch

    • merge the remote branch orphan branch into the local orphan branch

    • push it to the target repository.
