[erlang-questions] On Pull Requests Comments

Pull requests have the advantage that almost all Erlang projects already 
use them. Instead of having to lookup how to submit patches all the time 
one can now just use the workflow they are used to with other projects.

They also are useful for very small patches, like fixing typos, because 
those can be fixed directly using the Github UI, which is a lot more 
convenient and actually makes these contributions doable, as few people 
would go all the way to send them otherwise unless they were already 
setup for contributing.

You do bring up good points, but it's not all black and white. Both 
solutions have their own merits. I'm sure there's more than the above too.
