I am still not sure I understand what is the use case here: you mean
what do I do when I am working with 3rd party projects and I want to
contribute code to those projects? I usually go visit their web page,
find the "Developers -> How to contribute" page and do whatever they
need me to do provided it is not super complicated.

Github's "forking" was not around when FOSS started, derivative work
is a different thing.
