I mean how do you accept pull requests? You wouldn't be able to do it
through GitHub. You'd have to manually pull the branch from GitHub like the
name "pull request" implies. If you could commit to GitHub, then you could
add a remote besides origin for GitHub, then pull from the GitHub remote,
then push to the ASF remote (origin).
