AI can be used to summarize Pull Requests, making it easier to track changes and progress of any project.
Pull Requests have become a central part of many team's workflows. We love how they let us group changes into a single transactional chunk so they can be communicated, discussed and improved. But they also create overhead.

Forking a project is a way to contribute to an existing project without having push access, allowing users to make changes to the project publicly in a more open manner. This is done by clicking the "Fork" button at the top-right of the page, creating a topic branch from the master, making commits, pushing the branch to the project, opening a Pull Request, discussing, and optionally continuing committing, and then syncing the updated master back to the fork. The GitHub Flow is a workflow that works whether you're collaborating with a tightly-knit team in a single shared repository, or a globally-distributed company or network of strangers contributing to a project through dozens of forks.
Git - Contributing to a Project
Version control systems (VCSs) are used to track the history of changes as people and teams collaborate on projects together. Git is an example of a distributed version control system (DVCS) commonly used for open source and commercial software development, and allows developers to see the entire timeline of their changes, decisions, and progression of any project in one place. Git also provides more opportunities for project transparency and collaboration, and is supported by a variety of platforms, such as GitHub Desktop and Git Kraken.
