Well actually I think it is a Git thing.  I believe it just says: my
changes are in the public branch <some_url>, kindly pull from there;
eliminating the need to attach patches.  As an added advantage, it
preserves the commit hashes and many other committer/author information.

As far as I have seen, many projects work this way: Linux kernel, Git.
Github just provides a convenient web-interface for this, don't you


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
