There's a “git request-pull” command for generating a messages inviting
the upstream maintainer to pull for a given repository; the message
could very well be sent to this mailing-list. This of course assumes the
developer who sends the message has a publicly accessible repository
from which the maintainer can pull; not everyone has a private server
that can host a public repository, but nothing prevents you from using
Github for that.

Then there are tools such as ticgit (which I have never used) that seem
to provide a ticket system within a git repository; this could be used
for issue tracking. Does anyone of you have any experience with such
distributed tools?

I understand that learning yet another set of tools (git request-pull
and ticgit) will not please the fans of web-based, centralized
development tools à là Github, but as I am fond of truly decentralized
tools (as well as command-line tools) I'm wondering if it would be
possible to use them efficiently without too much hassle?
