Sorry, I don't think so :

If you can't push change in the git repo, you are just in one corner of
the internet, signaling the world you have modified something through a
PR, which might - or might not - be picked.

Those who pick those PRs and push them into the master are the
equivalent of The ASF committers.

I don't see how different is it from a CVCS world, where you checkout
trunk, change something, cut a diff and push it into a JIRA or whatever,
for the committers to process them...

Because, at the end of the day, when you clone a Git repo, this very
repo is stored and managed in a *central* place...
