An issue with Required status checks

Hello,

Currently there is an open PR (1) where it is stuck with passing tests but unable to merge without an administrative override. I think that this may be related to the fact it comes from an ‘unknown repository’ and therefore we cannot update the branch.

By moving the commit into a branch (git reset using the hash) on the repo I was able to create a second PR (2) which shows the correct branch out of date message. Obviously this means that I can now handle the merge from here, but this seems like a bug/UX issue so I thought I’d post about it here.
