CLA Assistant glitch in PRs

If a PR fails a status check with licence/cla — Waiting for status to be reported, try these steps:

  1. Push a no-op amend commit to the PR branch
  2. Log into and click Recheck PRs (under ...).
  3. If you've already signed the CLA and have write access to the cockroach repository, add the following function to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc file:

    function cla() {
      curl -H "Authorization: token $YOUR_GITHUB_TOKEN" \
        -d '{"state": "success", "context":"license/cla", "description": "curl"}' \$1

    and then run:

    •  cla $COMMIT_SHA
