Why a Pull Request?


I cloned a git repo into a new folder using:
git clone https://github.com/user/repo.git

now when I toggle the github tab (in the folder created by the clone process) I’m being asked about a pull request.

I have no need (that I know of ) for a pull request, I just want to start editing the files I cloned and push.
what am I misunderstanding?


Did you clone from your own (a fork), or from somebody else’s repository? If from somebody else’s, it assumes you want to push the changes to that repo, and that requires a PR.


from my own


Got it running - maybe some combination of user error and/or not understanding the gui.
