Possible meaning of "PR" abbreviation



I already know that PR can mean Public Relations or Puerto Rico, but none of these definition works in my context. I was on github, and an author basically said :

If you like this plugin and want to say thanks please send a PR or donation. Both are equally appreciated!


In this context, what does PR stand for ?

Still an English learner, feel free to correct my grammar. But please, do not correct the quote in yellow. Thank you. – Carlos2W – 2016-11-16T20:24:00.337



I would guess PR stands for "Pull Request" (you can see a tab for pull requests at the top of the page). That is, he'd like other people to try and contribute to his project.

That would make sense. Do you know if it's common to say PR in Github ? – Carlos2W – 2016-11-16T21:05:32.973

I don't use github all that much, so I don't know how common it is. I've never really seen it in my (admittedly limited) experience. – FirstLastname – 2016-11-16T21:12:36.547

Pull Requests are a common thing in distributed version control, haven't seen it abbreviated much though. – StarWeaver – 2016-11-16T23:06:17.640

2The abbreviation is very common on github and among any git-using open-source community. – Russell Borogove – 2017-04-03T01:35:17.237
