RE: Suggest a fix to github repository

There is a public repo on github I really like, but a url where it's downloads data from changed. Can I do a PR or something to suggest a fix for this? I'm new to GIT

Yes, you can definitely suggest a fix by submitting a Pull Request (PR) to the repository. Here's a basic step-by-step process about how to do this: 1. **Fork the Repository**: This creates a copy of the repository under your own GitHub account. 2. **Clone the Repository**: This creates a local copy of the repository on your system. You can do this by running the command: `git clone`. 3. **Create a New Branch**: It's a best practice to create a new branch for each new piece of work. You can do this by running: `git checkout -b BRANCH_NAME`. 4. **Make Your Changes**: Now, navigate to the file or files where the changes need to be made, modify them accordingly. 5. **Commit Your Changes**: Once you've made your changes, you need to commit them. First, stage your changes with: `git add .`, then commit your changes with: `git commit -m "Commit message"`. 6. **Push Your Changes to GitHub**: You can do this by running: `git push origin BRANCH_NAME`. 7. **Submit a Pull Request**: Finally, go to your repository on GitHub, navigate to the 'Pull requests' tab and click on 'New pull request'. Afterward, select your branch and submit the PR. Remember to follow the repository's contributing guidelines, if there are any. They'll likely provide further specifics on what they expect in a PR.
