In case you want gather feedback before the actual pull request, you should be able to generate a link to a git-diff between the feature branch and the main via the git servers Web-UI. Send this link to fellow devs.
File Pull Request
Push most recent commits from feature-branch to remote:
File pull request in the Web-UI of the git server
Explain your changes in the description text
Clean up commits
Do not make changes to the code in this step!
After incorporating comments/feedback from fellow developers into the code, and after the pull requests got approved, it’s good practice to clean up the commit history before merging.
Fetch latest changes on remote:
git fetch origin
Rebase your feature-branch to main to put your commits to the head of the latest main:
git rebase main
or, if you have a commit history with unnecessary commits, clean up by rebasing interactively:
git rebase -i main
After rebase is done, push feature branch with rewritten history to remote:
git push -f
Merging to Main
Usually this is done in the Web-UI of git server.
Checkout and Main and pull latest remote commits:
git checkout main git pull
Merge without fast forwarding to keep you (cleaned) commits:
