The process is:

1. Make a fork on github, that is your personal copy you can change as much
as you like
2. clone it to your computer and change it and push the changes back to
your github fork, make your changes on a branch other than master, eg
3. when it reaches a suitable quality level (there is a warning there :)
create a pull request asking for the changes to be incorporated into master

See the github documentation on those steps, IMHO Github doco isn't
terrible well organised, but google is your friend
