Sorry I didn't follow conversion to github and I am not really familiar with new workflow.

So as GeanyPrj maintainer how do I commit patch to mainline? Should my github user be added to "main" geany-plugins repository or I need to create new fork with related changes and create pull request to main geany-plugins from time to time?

This github stuff is a bit confusing for me.
