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 ?

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 ?

  • 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. Nov 16, 2016 at 21:12
  • Pull Requests are a common thing in distributed version control, haven't seen it abbreviated much though.

    The abbreviation is very common on github and among any git-using open-source community. Apr 3, 2017 at 1:35
