Running tests without a PR?

Hi Thomas,

We’re hoping that most of what the submit-repo provided can instead be serviced by GitHub Actions in the near future (see <>) - these tests can run directly on a branch before creating a PR.

Otherwise, as you have seen, any commands such as /test do indeed require a PR. In these cases you can usually use a “draft” PR though, which won’t cause any RFR emails to be sent until it leaves the draft state. So in such a PR it doesn’t really matter if you make multiple commits, you can just squash them together before making the PR non-draft.

Best regards,
