Popping in to #gentoo-infra and chatting with the folks there may get
you a faster response.

As far as I know, we accept pull requests from the GitHub mirror *or* a
standard `git format-patch` e-mail.

We do have a social contract[1] which indicates that we will not depend
on proprietary software. That said, the GitHub mirror is there for
convenience; I'm betting part of why we use it on the side is because it
already meshes well with Git to begin with and can be a good 'gateway'
for new contributors.

We also accept patches on the gentoo-dev ML or (depending on the
developer) personal e-mails or Bugzilla bugs. You might want to check
out a few pages on the wiki regarding how we handle contributions, or
pop in #gentoo-proxy-maint on Freenode.
