I considered my case, only a one-off contribution, it is less text to read.
I am fine with adding the new information to the end.

The SSH URL can be used to download too, but `git clone` printed 'permission
denied' as far as I remember.

Other git hosting platforms support write access for users' forks.
I was surprised to find out this is not the case for src.fedoraproject.org.
Of course, with this behavior the remote pull-request is the proper way to do

You can create a fork on src.fedoraproject.org if your account is not a member
of the 'packager' group.
For this account and repo:
* up- and downloading with the SSH URL fails
* downloading with the HTTPS URL works
(I guess uploading with the HTTPS URL is not supported, like it is in pagure.io)
