This has been discussed on a couple lists already.   The consensus on the other projects I've
been involved in is issuing a pull request from github is a clear enough intent to contribute.
 (as long as the pull request is properly forwarded to the right dev list which I think the
mailer is setup OK for that now.)   Several projects are grabbing fixes via pull requests.
