I've just added you as a developer to the FreeType repositories.

If you want to submit general changes to FreeType please submit MRs.
However, for your ftinspect GSoC stuff you should push to a personal
branch (or even branches, if necessary) of the upstream repositories
*without* MRs.  In your personal branch(es) you can go wild – no need
for forking :-)

At the end of the GSoC period you should eventually consolidate your
commits into logical chunks in a branch called something like
'GSoC-2022-charlie', which you can then reference in your final
