Would this work for commits?  Assuming of course that I had rights to 
commit?

Makes sense.  That would be the issue in this case.

My general point was that documentation in general around git is very 
vague, except for the overlays (which is still lacking, but there is 
enough info to at least be dangerous there).

Maybe a worked example with full command lines might be helpful - 
starting from scratch check out repository, change a file, and commit it 
to the official repository.  The info out there does require filling in 
a lot of blanks, and since git itself has no concept of a central 
repository there aren't a lot of examples of how to do this.  Such an 
example should of course factor in any Gentoo-isms as well (changelogs 
(if applicable), commit messages, etc - anything we ought to be doing).
