When we do a PR it's because we have a repository with code that we want to
integrate in another repository.

If another user of the original repository wants to review this code, he
needs to reference the fork of the new code's author because this code is
not yet in the original repository.

So, if in Pharo you want to see/merge the code of a PR, you need the fork
of the author as a remote to be able to fetch/pull the code.

Once the review is finished you can delete this remote if you wish.
