That's good to know. I wasn't so sure since pull requests aren't a standard git feature. (I use git every day, but very rarely use GitHub.)

Yes, I am aware of this approach - but it's bit cruft for no gain. I was more curious about "is there a better way" or is there a more "size efficient way" to do this. Asking around and some searching says what I want is a big fat "nope".

It should be possible to systematically re-assign or steal ownership of PRs, since people may not (or may not be able to) follow up on a PR they sent a year ago, and there is nothing technical that blocks this, except GitHub it seems. :-)
