[erlang-patches] git pull requests

In README.md:

"We prefer to receive proposed updates via email on the erlang-patches
mailing list rather than through a pull request. Pull requests are not
practical because we have a strict policy never to merge any untested
changes to the development branch..."

Apart from this statement being puzzling (pull requests don't prevent
testing prior to pushing to public repos), it seems like pull requests
are being used to submit patches.

If git pull requests are acceptable, would it make sense to update README.md?

I'd happily submit a pull request for this change, but, well :)
