It would be a really useful contribution to the community for someone to
publish concise documentation of their workflow of how they interact
with the GnuPG project as a non-core developer.  (hint, hint)

I know we all have our own idiosyncrasies, and no one wants to inflict
their workflow on anyone else.  But one of the things that github offers
is a standardized workflow across projects.  I personally dislike that
particular workflow (i don't like centralized servers; i prefer a
detached, e-mail-oriented workflow) but it's true that it probably does
facilitate participation by others simply because of its scale of
adoption.  that's the network effect for you :(

Having someone be willing to act as a bridge between the github workflow
and the mailing list workflow does seem like a useful contribution to
the community, as much as we'd like to ultimately invite the
github-influenced folks to come join us in happy fun e-mailed patches
