Github allows you to make small corrections online, without downloading
anything. If you don't already have a fork of the repo, it will be created
and you will get an option to create a PR for the fix (commiters can commit
directly to a branch).
Just go to the file in the source tree and press the "Edit this file"
button (the pen in the upper right corner).
