Hi Miguel

yes, as you can see, we allow 'some' people to update their own
packages directly on SBo's GIT repository, thus it's easier for us to
just take their changes during public update and push it along with
other changes by other maintainers.

You can use this method as a start:
- - clone our GIT repository and push it to public space, such as github
or bitbucket or any other public git repo out there
- - make a branch based on latest master branch
- - make your changes on that branch
- - send me your pull request and i will merge it on my branch

during public update, you only need to pull master branch for updates
and then rebase your branch or simply create your branch and make a
new branch from updated master branch

I already use this method for Dimitris and Ryan and so far, it worked :)

this is just a tool to view changes happening on all branches
the official git is git://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds.git
