If I understand correctly, for contributors without commit rights, the new
patches "path" is

1) local work
2) local git
3) contributor github fork
4) official github fork

> This sounds easy enough in theory, but for your local work you pull and
> merge from "origin" and push to "fork", and then you go to the GH site and
> start the pull request, and once it's in you start cleaning up work
> branches both locally and on GitHub. It's a lot of clerical work, and some
> aspects of this all are easy to get wrong for a git newbie.
