We call both issues and pull-requests "topics". The contributions to the conversation are called "posts". The post that initiated the conversation is also called a post.
These commands are available only from the topic buffer (i.e. from the
buffer that shows the posts on a topic). Other commands that also
work in other buffers are available here also. For example

Creating a new post and editing an existing post are similar to creating a new commit and editing the message of an existing commit. In both cases the message has to be written in a separate buffer. And then the process has to be finished or canceled using a separate command.
The following commands are available in buffers used to edit posts:
This command submits the post that is being edited in the current buffer.
This command cancels the post that is being edited in the current buffer.
