Hi Hayati,

I'm pretty sure is the upstream; to ask steve-m to merge 
your changes into his repository, just log on to github, go to, and you should see something like
"This branch is 2 commits ahead of steve-m:master    Pull Request"
right at the top, just under the header where you can select your branch.

The Impressum of said to send in patches via this mailing 
list, so that's what I did once, and that worked too :), so assuming 
steve-m's repo is called "steve-m" in your git ("git remote -v" will 
tell), and the modified master branch being currently checked out

git format-patch steve-m/master

will generate a patch file for each commit between your master's HEAD 
and steve-m/master.
