Yes, I have read that. Look at the directions for sending a patch and
notice the comment that forking github projects doesn't work. Compare
that to the widespread github work-flow of forking a repo, committing
changes, and then submitting a pull request. The latter is *much* more
user friendly than manually creating patches, logging into bugzilla,
filling a bug, submitting a patch...
