I usually create a fork if I need a PR.

By the way, maybe I misunderstood; if you do have push access already and you think something is really, really trivial, go ahead and push small changes. :-)

Hi Ivan,

From experience outside GNUstep: I don't think it's necessarily a bad
practice to do code review on every commit going in (including
trivial), even among core devs. It's perhaps a shame we're not
enforcing code review for /every/ submission.

Anyway, I think each of the improvements sounds good -- I think it's
very good to upstream your changes, so thank you for doing this. They
do sound like something where it might be a good idea for a second eye
to take a quick look? (I know I wouldn't mind having someone take a
look at my changes, when I make them, as even trivial ones could break
I understand your concerns absolutely. Everybody make a mistakes. :)
Although there are some corner cases were I'll take a courage to commit directly.
For example, Ukrainian translation file. Is it OK?

How about we try with PRs for these (incl for trivial changes) and
then look at flipping the permissions switch for you?
It's good if it's make GNUstep code quality better.
I'm a GNUstep developer since 2001, if I recall correctly (including paper signing from FSF).
Moreover, I'm a perfectionist for quality in code and feel of a UI/UX.
I don't know if somebody else here is everyday user of GNUstep codebase as me (I use NEXTSPACE as production environment for a several months).
If something goes wrong I'll see it immediately. :)

Anyway, I'll agree with you and will start creating PRs.
Do I need to create branch or fork? What would your recommend?

Once again, thank you for offering these patches!
