"To FreeBSD a PR is a ""ticket"" containing either (or both) a bug report or a feature request or a patch (to be thoughtfully tried and eventually committed by someone with the proper permissions).

It's used to track problems and their resolution (""closing"" a PR usually means the underlying problem was solved)."

"A PR is a Problem Report. It's not only used for problems but as a way to track any user-submitted issues including bugs, ideas and patches related to the base system (src) and ports.
