Your guests Jen and Nate were talking about github, forks, patching and credit and some of their difficulties therewith.
There is a way to pull patches from a fork or the main project on github and give credit. You just add .patch to the end of the url of a commit page, pull request, or compare view.
TIP: I found that when there was something like
#diff-3254677a7917c6c01f55212f86c57fbf at the end of the url I had to strip it away, then add .patch to see the plain text patch.
In your git project folder where you want to apply the patch you can do it directly using the url copied from the browser something like this:
curl https://github.com/foo/bar-project/commit/84562b20b8fccecff24fa82a66d36041e417f424.patch | git am
When I have patched a github project this way it gives credit to the original patch maker, something like this
foo committed with bar on 1 Jan 2016
