Nginx has their own development process. They don’t use git either, nor do they accept pull
requests, and they expect you to follow a well defined process not dissimilar to ours. If
I was to contribute to Nginx I would respect their process, not attempt to impose mine on
them first.

No, you expressed a definite unwillingness to follow our process, which starts by creating
a patch for trunk.

Except in this case.

Unfortunately you’re pointing out the obvious. There are a number of ways of doing things,
and projects make different decisions to meet their needs and objectives. That way is sometimes
not your favoured way. If we constantly changed our process, we’d not serve our community,
and ultimately serving our community is the point.
