    Can't submit pull requests to UE4 GitHub source

    I made some minor modifications to the engine source code and I think it would be valuable to the rest of the community. I tried to submit a pull request for the UE4 source code, but I get the following error:
    Click image for larger version

Name:	Sync-Error.png
Views:	1
Size:	59.0 KB
ID:	1143409

    Is this the intent? Am I following the right process for submitting pull requests to Epic for inclusion in the next engine update?

    You cannot push commits directly to the UE4 repo. Make a fork for yourself and commit to a branch on that.

      Hello.
      Is there any instructions or tutorial about submitting pull requests for UE4 repository on GitHub? I believe forking of repository is not required because I checked pages of some pull request authors and most of them doesn't have UE4 repository forks. Is it really possible to submit changes without making a fork?

        It's just as Fury said, you cannot push commits directly to the UE4 repo. You have to fork it, make your change, and submit a pull request.

        Some of the authors may work for Epic and thus they don't need to fork in order to submit changes.

            I wrote a small hint sheet for submitting a pull request - https://trello.com/c/1bE9BFkX/47-ue4-pull-requests, probably it could be useful for somebody. Thanks to Rama for initial instructions he provided to me
