So I decided to try this out.  I went to
https://github.com/erlang/otp/blob/maint/lib/et/doc/src/et_intro.xml ,
clicked "Edit this file", removed the stray apostrophe on line 43,
typed in a commit message, and clicked "Propose file change".  I got
a very fancy 500 error page that changes perspective when I move the
mouse; no sign of anything being committed to my otp fork on Github.

Is there a workaround for that?
