I strongly dislike any idea of making me do more error-prone work when
Also, pressing the big green button is a distinct action from anything
else one does on the page. I am sure this is intentional from a UI
design viewpoint, to minimize the possibility of merging by accident.
I am personally not so concerned about changing '#' to 'GH-'. The bpo
number is already distinguished by the 'bpo-' prefix. But since you are:
Supposes when a PR is created, a bot appended '(GH-nnnn)' to the title.
Would github's bot still append '(#nnnn)'? What is it appended '(GH#nnnn)'?
Can titles be edited by a bot after a merge? (You might want this
anyway to 'correct' existing merges.)
Can we ask GH to make the number prefix a configuration option?
