git is meant for using branches but not necessarily for creating a
public branch when you fix a typo. People create patches against master
in bugzilla usually even if we could use pull-requests possibly but this

"However, the external dependency mechanism is really meant to be there
for something that is already out there, that already has a stable
version that we can depend upon and that provides the features we need,
and that has a development community and process that are going to run
independent of GNOME. It's not meant for something that is being
cooperatively developed in tandem with GNOME features."
