anonydog

On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog.

Is your identity influencing the way project mantainers look at your pull requests?

Stay anonymous on GitHub

Let's get started!

Identity

Is your identity influencing the way people look at your code?

I can help you answer that. I'm a bot (or a dog -- you'll never know for sure) that helps you stay anonymous on GitHub.

How does it work?

Send your pull requests to my fork. I will clone and submit them to the upstream repo under my own name. You can then use the pull request page in my repo to talk anonymously to the project maintainers.

Research

With your help, I will be able to build a body of data to answer very interesting social coding questions. Will some people have better odds of getting pull requests accepted when anonymized? Will we see that some language communities are more identity-neutral than others?
