Feature request: Drafts of pull requests

I love being able to write drafts of release notes before making a release. I would like to be able to save a pull request description as a draft because I often start writing the description then realize it's missing something, and I end up copy/pasting that text somewhere else until I'm ready to submit the PR.

 

Thanks!

Its nice that this feature exists now.

 

I would love to have the ability to convert a pull request that was created as a regular one, to a draft.

Thanks for that additional feedback @DannyBen! Definitely see the value in that, and I believe you're not the first to mention it since we launched the draft pull request feature. I'll make sure that it's logged in our internal feedback issue for this feature for future consideration!

Excellent. I also want to mention that I am creating PRs by using a command line that uses the GitHub API - as far as I understand, there is currently no way to create a PR through the API in draft mode. I have tried applying the "API Preview" Accept header, and sending "draft: true" in my POST request, but it did nothing.

@DannyBen The feature should be supported with the GraphQL API, but if you're using the REST API, this won't be available (at this time). I just confirmed that there is, indeed, a request logged for support in the REST API and I'll make sure your feedback is represented there.

We made such a tool with Go quickly.

 

Here is our source code.  Hope this helps.

Also add the feture to convert a draft PR to a regular one not only by the person that made the PR but also from the team that handles the repository that is receiving the PR
