15:34 Doctor_Pi I believe I have found some typos in the Perl 6 book.
15:34 PerlJam It's entirely possible.
15:35 PerlJam You could fork the repo on github and submit pull requests with your corrections
15:37 Doctor_Pi PerlJam: hmmmm, I'm a little ignorant about git, but shouldn't my corrections be push requests?
15:39 PerlJam Doctor_Pi: no, you fork the repo and have your own copy of everything that you make changes to, then you request that the book authors pull from your repo to get those changes.
15:41 Doctor_Pi PerlJam: Oh, thanks for the clarification. Am I allowed to save my repo on github?
15:41 PerlJam sure
15:43 Doctor_Pi PerlJam: So then when my changes are accepted into the main repo I can update my own copy.
18:05 Doctor_Pi What is the last  version released? July 2011?
18:06 moritz seems like, yes
18:12 Doctor_Pi looking at the repo there a have been corrections since then.

18:24 Doctor_Pi moritz: now that my commits have been merged, is there anything I need to do with my repo?
18:26 moritz Doctor_Pi: no
18:27 Doctor_Pi Wow, github makes contributing trivially simple.
18:31 moritz indeed, that's why we love it :-)
