The github-branch-source-plugin says that it should build branches and PR's, and from digging through commit history, I see that it is intended for private repos only, and it will not work for remote repos. However I have a private repo, and my PR's are all from origin, and it scans my pull requests, it says "submitted from origin repository, skipping".
I've looked through https://github.com/jenkinsci/workflow-plugin/blob/master/TUTORIAL.md#creating-multibranch-projects , and I've looked at the PR that put this check in place, https://github.com/jenkinsci/github-branch-source-plugin/pull/14 , but no where does it try to explain why we are skipping because it was "submitted from origin repository", isn't that the ideal PR to build? Because we know they have access to that repo since it is from origin?
If there is a legit reason for this, then this message should be clarified better.
Link to the code that specifies that it should skip a pull request in this situation, https://github.com/jenkinsci/github-branch-source-plugin/blob/master/src/main/java/org/jenkinsci/plugins/github_branch_source/GitHubSCMSource.java#L290-L292 . Why would we want to ignore PR's from the origin repo?
