You don't have to use pull requests, as I said: opt-in feature of a repo.

I won't use it too in my workflow. Treat it as an exception: some folks in KDE
friendly and openly accept patches sent by email and _friendly_
encourage that next time for non-trivial work it will be better to use
official tools.

@Sune you're from KDE but for example packagers often use email to
send "fix build" patches.

Nobody responded to this to so I'll repeat: I won't reject early
attempts of people wanting to contribute so if I have to I'll use
personal forks on github and any other places where I actually can
meet contributors.

Then the Issues thing is another matter: I'd appreciate that you read
- I am not proposing to use it as alternative bugzilla (which is
terrible BTW) but to solve integration issue I am having. Hopefully it
will be sorted more cleanly one day.

PS: We're also supporting "nonstandard" approach: patches in bugzilla
(that can never be marked as rejected if are invalid), shouldn't this
feature be blocked?
