On open-source projects (well, really all projects), it’d be really helpful to disallow proposing pull requests with empty descriptions. I figured that would be a setting alongside other pull request/branch protection features, but it doesn’t seem to be, and a search in help site and in this forum don’t seem to turn up anything about it either. Is there a way to do this that I’m missing? Otherwise, I’d really love to see this feature built in.
I could probably write a bot or app that could automatically post a negative review or comment on these PRs, but:
- It would be a lot more straightforward if the author got a gentle reminder right when they try to post the PR that they should add a description, rather than getting a message after the fact.
- Not having to create a public trail of nanny-style comments or negative reviews seems like it would be a lot more polite
