The current wording is a bit curt. Flesh it out a bit and put in some
useful detail.

I guess the real question we should be asking is: Why don't we take
github pull requests? The best answer I can offer is that it seems to
be impossible to get the DCO (the signed-off-by, etc) correct when using
PRs since github doesn't let you screw with the patches proper when
merging a PR. As far as I can tell anyway, I could be wrong.
