I have to say I don't have any experience with pull requests, whatever those 
are, but since Jaroslaw put the into the context of patches by email I would 
assume that the workflow still has all patches go through proper review, these 
pull request would just be a form of patch submission.

Lets consider an example, say Okular.

If Okular has the policy that nothing is merged without review, then all 
patches for Okular need to go through KDE's review tool 

If contributors to Okular feel they want to accept submission per email, 
bugzilla attachment or github pull request, then they will still have to 
submit these patches for review, no?
