Then why don't they create a branch for you in the Savannah repo?
You could push onto that branch?

Other projects like CMake offer 2 repos, one "main" and one "stage"
stage is pushable for registered developers where any "reasonable"
branch initially taken from main/master can be pushed.

Project admin. & developer do merge from stage to main when needed.

In fact it is a little more complicated than this but you get the idea,
details are here:

May be Savannah could offer such "dual repo" for each hosted project,
with a "stage" one where contributors could put their shareable branches?

I cannot evaluate the work for doing that but I can say that the
workflow is efficient
and I use it since CMake made the CVS to git switch (2+ years ago).
