I sense you've never used git before.

The way it works is, you clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xcb/libxcb

You make your changes in that clone. Ideally in a series of logical,
easy-to-review steps. Then you push the whole history to your private
branch. In this case, github.

That way, when one of us pulls from your repository, we can see your
changes compared to the original repository. What you currently have
on github is not a branch, but an entirely new (albeit very short)
history. This makes it very hard to see your changes, and impossible
to merge.

If you have any questions on git usage, please feel free to ask. The
git documentation is excellent, but there is a lot so it can be

So do I.

Thanks for all your effort,
