But even if a project is hosted on GitHub, you can still interact with
it just via Emacs, it is still Git after all.

One project I have made minor contributions to is EasyBuild, a framework
for managing the building and installation of (mainly) scientific
software, which is hosted on GitHub:


However, I can interact with it via Magit, and even if I don't use
Emacs, the project has command-line tools which allow the creation of a
pull request without the me having to know anything about GitHub or even


Obviously the EasyBuild people have put quite a lot of work into making
this possible and it is mainly to allow people to contribute
self-contained "recipes" for building particular pieces of software,
rather than work on the main code of the framework.

To be honest, last time I tried, responding to comments on pull-requests
didn't work so well via Emacs, so unfortunately I ended up having to
using the web-interface.

But on the other hand, they also have a mailing list, so there is
something for everyone ;-)
