I accidentally pointed my pull request to the wrong branch (my own master instead of the master of the repo I forked and am patching). How do I point it to the other repo?

It lets me edit the pull request, but the edit only seems to allow choosing between different branches on my own repository.  I've tried accepting the request and starting again, but it looks like I can only generate one pull request for a given commit.  So far, the only way I've found to get my patch through is by making a small edit (like a white space edit), generating a new branch with that edit, and generating an entirely new pull request.

The usual way to deal with this is:

  • decline the current pull request
  • create a new one from the same branch to the correct destination

I think this should work for you as well.
