I'm not. However I'm pretty familiar with the concept of me wanting to
do something I shouldn't try to do.

I am also a geek, and therefore potentially harmful...

... Oh yes they do.... (sigh)

I guess I just feel so concerned about the few developers we have that
I just would like to do everything I can to save them some work. Plus,
I find working with git very exciting (I'm using it for my own opera
now)... and I felt much more comfortable with applying someone else's
patch (particularly coming from Joe) than with commiting anything on
my own, should it be a trivial typo correction in the docs.

Won't do it again :)
