GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ and everyone is welcome to contribute at https://github.com/Clorith/wporg-support-guidelines

Our helpful tools (Also Viewing script and such), as noted in https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/appendix/helpful-tools/, have moved slightly. As userscripts no longer reliably update over gist files, it’s recommended to remove your existing one and re-install from the links provided on that page.
