Ping? Let me know if I have the wrong list, I thought comdev maintained

I've been in contact with two podlings, one publicly and one privately, who
both ran into an issue on this question (for the record, they both marked
yes, both use pull requests to accept contributions, and I pointed out to
them that commit messages from external contributors don't include the
information listed, they agreed when reading the question).  It seems to me
that using a pull request is valid, and it keeps enough provenance of the
code (git has a notion of an author and committer, so maybe we can just
mention that?).  It's just that the wording doesn't really line up with how
git works.
