Careful!  I was a casual user until I mentioned I would like to help.  They
chained me to a wall and next thing I knew I was re-building a website. :)

Yes, the preferred method until you're known and trusted is likely to get
the website from git, make your proposed changes and send a patch to the
mailing list.

Do note that we are in the process of migrating the site to a different
back-end infrastructure - so your patch _may_ be better aimed at
static.gimp.org (in the gimp-web-static branch of gimp-web).  Feel free to
poke me if you need further instructions (because I still haven't written
the README that jimmac suggested a over a month ago).
