Link Details

Forking and pull requests do encourage contributions by eliminating certain barriers to start hacking on someone else’s project. Whereas it was quite painful to maintin patches externally to someone else’s source code in Subversion, Git makes this trivial with branching and occasional rebases or merges. This part is a good thing.
