The GitHub pulls scoreboard says I'm losing

I'm embarrassed to admit that I just fixed a bug, shipped the module, and then discovered a 2-year old pull request that fixed it better. Oops.

I hate things like that!

Fortunately, I just discovered that GitHub offers a pull request scoreboard with two views:

Unfortunately, the scoreboard says I'm losing:

Pll request scoreboard

My Pull request scoreboard

I'll have to do something about that.

    This is great. I just checked my board. I am losing too, but what I have noticed is that quite a few of thos pull requests are for repositories I don't onw. Very strange.

      The owner might have added you as a contributor, giving you partial administrative rights. I'm not sure how you can see that other that seeing if the page offers you read+write URLs.

        That's what I thought but I don't have write access on some of those projects.

          ... or maybe it just me being blind. Forget it. I noticed I do have write access.

    And following this link I could "Leave" some of those project (I have not contributed to some of those in years). This removed the pull requets from my scoreboard.

    Also check out: which contains a record of all outstanding issues you've submitted, and have been submitted against all repos (all pull requests are issues, but not all issues are pull requests).

      (I was wrong about that - issues and pulls are now reported totally separately. I could have sworn they were combined at one point though!)

        They are combined – even now: in the issue tracker of an individual repository. Every PR is listed there as an issue. I do not remember them ever being combined this way in the dashboard. But I too could be misremembering.
