We don't use GitHub at all for the LibreOffice project. What you see on
our GitHub repo is just a read-only mirror.
The answer you got on the dev mailing list still stands mostly:

Both sound good.
For the 100-paper-cuts idea, you will need to go thorough the list of
the paper-cuts, and select 15-20 of them, preferably related to the
same or similar part(s) of the code-base. Write a draft with them, and
ask for input/opinion from me or Samuel Mehrbrodt.
For the "Additions - Tight integration of extensions like GHNS!" idea,
you will need to investigate the current situation of the extensions
website, and the extension manager, go through the initial idea and
the blog post by Heiko Tietze, try to refine the idea, and come up
with a final design. Attending design meetings, and also discussing
the idea with Heiko Tietze and me would help a lot. Beware that this is
a very nice project idea, but might need some preliminary work to give
it a final shape, preferably before submitting your final proposal.
Otherwise, it might cause you to lose some time at the beginning of the

If you are going to go with the 100-paper-cuts idea, here is a nice
easyhack of 'interesting' level:
