Did a quick screencast with some coworkers today on the latest thing I love about Github. Last time, I covered how to create pull requests. This time, I explain how to create a pull request out of an existing issue. Since pull requests are basically just issues with commits attached, it's often undesirable to create a new pull request to address something reported in an existing issue, because you just wind up with two issues that address the same thing.
There isn't a way to do this through the Github interface, but the hub command line tool adds some special sauce for working with Github, and the thing I use it for most is opening pull requests for issues.
The quality is crummy, so turn up the quality to 480p.
