Right. Exactly.
However, from what I've seen, new developers are being taught that
places such as Github are the only way to develop and distribute code.
Hell, I've seen people think that 'git' was just short for Github.
Perhaps the point of this whole thread is an example of what I'm talking

By documenting how things are done in certain projects, it 1. allows
them to expand their knowledge, and 2., allows them to in the future
possibly contribute code appropriately.

I don't understand what you mean here.
Maybe I'm too tired and am missing something, but I would think that
you're in agreement that mailing list submissions are good? Apologies if
I'm misinterpreting it.

I think I've said everything I need to regarding my views on this
matter, so I won't delve into it anymore.
