  • Obviously in open source, code is public
  • Other discussions happen in public too
  • This can happen in many public forums (Slack, Discord, Blogs, etc)
  • GitHub has some special features for discussing code changes in particular
  • The most common you'll hear about is a Pull Request
  • A Pull Request requests that the owner of a repository merge one branch into another
  • Users can discuss the code changes and make suggestions before merging
