List pull requests in the current repository.


Check out the head of a pull request in a new branch.

To update the pull request with new commits, use git push.


Open a pull request page in a web browser. When no PR-NUMBER is specified, HEAD is used to look up open pull requests and defaults to the current branch name. With --format, print information about the pull request instead of opening it.


-s, --state STATE

Filter pull requests by STATE. Supported values are: "open" (default), "closed", "merged", or "all".

-h, --head BRANCH

Show pull requests started from the specified head BRANCH. The "OWNER:BRANCH" format must be used for pull requests from forks.

-b, --base BRANCH

Show pull requests based off the specified BRANCH.

-f, --format FORMAT

Pretty print the list of pull requests using format FORMAT (default: "%pC%>(8)%i%Creset %t% l%n"). See the "PRETTY FORMATS" section of git-log(1) for some additional details on how placeholders are used in format. The available placeholders are:
