I don't think so.  I'd like to see one.

I think a pull request is right.

It doesn't matter much if the branch you're asking to pull is in the
main repository or in a private fork.

I think it's fine to merge own pull requests, provided that somebody
+1'd it.  (Or if nobody cared for a couple of weeks, even after asking
for feedback on the list.)

Can we please get the http://foundation.zope.org/ website source on
