Hi Philip,

Thanks for lending a hand.  Its nice seeing bugfixes get committed.

Please don't switch to Github simply for pull requests.  Stability is 
important for a project like this, and Github has a tendency to encourage 
fragmentation...  It gets bothersome tracking repository moves.  If you do 
start accepting pull requests over there, I would ask that you keep the SF 
repository up to date as the "primary" master.

Are these emailed patches using git format-commit and git-am?  If not, 
then maybe encouraging their use would help you.
