I see what you mean but there was no discussion about this matter in
this thread at least.

For code I maintain I welcome:
- any form of patches even if they come via pull requests, just like
for me emailed patches are also better than no patches
- any form of donations for features -> for that Issues are needed

It's possible to fork these mirrors to get this support and I am doing
this now for a test in case of kreport.git.
https://github.com/staniek/kreport-1

But again, please consider this as less controlled/predictable
activity - that forking will happen anyway, as this is the value of
github-based collaboration, and (IMHO) sense of our existence on
github.
