The project is already using Git, so Github is no different there.

Sorry - this is very confusing. You have patches but not diffs? To me
those two words refer to essentially the same thing.

We'd love to see your contributions, but whether via Github or email
or USB stick when meeting in person you will at a minimum need a
branch in a local repository with your proposed changes, and go from
there. You'll need to write meaningful commit mesages and have one
commit per logical change.

Whether you then push that branch to Github (git push) or send your
changes to the mailing list (git send-email) shouldn't make much of
a difference?
