We just rolled out a new feature that allows you to activate an auto-response to any pull requests you receive.

Here’s a few use cases that make this a pretty cool feature:

  • You use an external service to manage tickets and patches, so you setup an auto-responder that’ll PM the requester with the pertinent information (ideally, with a link).
  • You’re going on vacation for a couple of weeks and just want to let any requesters know you’ll be able to take care of their patches when you get back.
  • Someone forked your repo and you’re tired of maintaining it, so you setup an auto-responder to let people know that the other guy is the person they should be sending pull requests to.

You’ll see the link in your repo’s edit page:
