Checkout github pull requests locally

Locate the section for your github remote in the .git/config file. It looks like this:

Simple load generation script to test web applications.
* This script helps to artifically generate load on a web application through
* weighted requests to various endpoints. It may not be pretty, but it works
* for me. :) Feel free to use however you want.
* NOTE: Please use responsibly, don't run this script against a production server!
