I guess the point of Stefan is not to use github because of github as
webservice and/or company, but to be able to make a pull request
directly and not to make it by wrapping the changes into an email.

Stefan, so far I know (please correct me if I'm wrong), the development
(and commitment) of openwrt is actually made on SVN (passed forward to
GIT) and not directly on GIT. SVN does not have such mechanism like
"pull requests". If it was done fully as GIT-repository you could use
the pull request feature also without using github. "pull requests" are
a GIT feature and not a github feature. One of the github features is
the fancy web-GUI around it :-)

PS: I must confess that sending changes by e-mail is still new for me,
but it is makable :-) If some day a direct pull request would be
possible... That would be very nice.

Best Regards,
