That's weird - I can see the patch content of pull requests & it seems to also be in the archive.

Yeah, it really is kinda on-directional anyway due to the need to reply on GitHub.

Certainly! Only possible issue from the community/contributor perspective could be
that there are some people who don't use or don't want to use GitHub, for various reasons.
On the other hand I don't think we really got any such contributions recently &
we could use the devel list for that if needed.

It is running on the Fedora infrastructure, so I guess the contacting the
Infra people might be a way to go:
