Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Send Github new comment notifications to the dev list

+1 on sending the discussion to the ML.

Another thought is, if there was some type of consensus for what a good 
patch request looked like, and was documented and understandable, a PR 
on github could lead to giving the submitter instructions for the 
recommended best method. Currently, it's very confusing for outside 
contributors, like myself. I'm pretty savvy about all the available 
methods, and still not sure exactly what to do. In the last few patches 
I created, I made PR on github, and added the patches to the relevant 
JIRA tickets. In one case, I didn't have a JIRA ticket for the initial 
PR, so I created a JIRA ticket for it and updated.

Bottom line for me is that it doesn't matter what needs doing, just need 
instructions for what needs done. The details are quite irrelevant so 
long as it doesn't fall through the cracks.

Really without any clear instructions or method, the outside impression 
can easily be misinterpreted that the contributions are unwelcome. I 
know this isn't the case, but just being clear that it's easy to draw 
incorrect conclusions when no clear evidence exists for any viewpoint.
