Fork a teammate's repository

  1. Fork a teammate's repository
  2. Copy your fork and make a change to the repository
  3. Create a pull request

Since everyone on your team is not in the Bitbucket space station all at the same time, one of your team members decided it would be a neat idea to gather some inspiring quotes that anyone can refer to, whether they are making plans for the new space station on Saturn's rings or adventuring out to a new solar system! Your teammate started up a repository with the thought that anyone can contribute and inspire. You decide that you have a quote you want to add.

In this example you'll fork a public repository belonging to a user called tutorials.

  1. Depending on which DVCS tool you are using, use the search field in the top right corner of Bitbucket to find one of the following repositories:
  2. From the repository you open, click Fork on the left side of the screen. The system displays the fork page.
  3. Change the Name for example, to myteamquotes.
  4. In the Description field, enter Inspiring quotes for my team.
  5. Uncheck Inherit repository user/group permissions.
  6. Press Fork repository.
