Commit your changes in your repo (on whatever branch you see fit),
then read up on how to use remotes, e.g. at
<http://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Branching-Remote-Branches> and
<http://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Basics-Working-with-Remotes>.  Add,
as a new remote, the repo containing the branch you have been asked to
commit your work on.  Then look at merging in git, e.g.
Check out the branch locally and merge in your changes.  Then push.

No, the end result should be that your changes are more widely
accessible :)
