It worked, after I configured git to use my existing ssh keys that
Savannah knows about.  (That wasn't trivial to do on Windows, and a
quick Google search didn't find anything that worked.)

I pushed a simple change in ChangeLog, just to be sure I know how to
do that, please see if I did something wrong.  (I never pushed
anything to any git repository until now, only pulled read-only
copies.)  It might be a good idea to add a short section to README.git
with a simple workflow for developers who are not used to using git,
to avoid any breakage that incorrect usage might cause.
