Maybe, but I have experienced the opposite with other projects on github:

I provide a fix to an obvious problem as a context diff against the latest
snapshot with like four lines changed (and an explanation why it fixes
an obvious problem). To do this I have to learn about stupid formatting rules
in the joke of a bug tracker to make the patch at least readable in the
ticket I am filing.

Next I get an email I should do a pull request - at which point I punt.
