Continuing the discussion from Discourse Development Contribution Guidelines:
Slowly I’m approaching the moment where I actually can spare time to contribute code to Discourse. This is something I have wanted to do for a while, but life decided otherwise. In the meantime, Microsoft acquired Github, which is for me, a free software zealot, an atrocious news because, even if Github was never a friend of software freedom, it was not its archenemy. Now, by the end of this year, Github should be fully owned by Microsoft, which may have changed since the 1990s, but remains itself, with questionable commercial activity and political moves that I simply cannot accept – this is a long story that I do not want to debate here.
In a world where Github became the normal way to discover and contribute to most software, how can I contribute to Discourse without a Github account? Do you accept emailed PRs and simple git contributions, and do you already have experience with such contributions? Would you maintain Discourse mirrors on other code hosting platforms? Would you update the development contribution guidelines to invite alternative ways to contribute to Discourse?
