I moderated this through, in order to start a discussion.
My feeling is: this is not how we want to accept patches. This
approach is completely disconnected from our community. How do we talk
to the person providing the change? How do we ask for modifications?
How to interact?
But even larger: our goal is to get people *involved* in our
community. There isn't any obvious way to get 'techtonik' brought into
our community unless they come to the dev@ list.
That said... we *do* accept patches via the issue tracker on
subversion.tigris.org. Are we ready to accept patches through a
separate channel? Personally, I'm not ready to say "hey, any channel
on the planet is fine. please... feel free! devise new channels! we
are willing to review 100 channels for incoming patches!"
I like GitHub. It is a very, very well-done site. But I'm not ready to
say that it is a viable mechanism for people to deliver patches. My
preference is for those to arrive here on dev@, where we can interact
with the person. Not as some drive-by, fait accompli.
