Thats right - pull requests are a very nice feature of github. For example, if 
I am not content with what the pull request contains, I can write that and 
make a suggestion how to do it better. The user can now add more commits and 
adapt to my suggestions (see for example [1]). That is IMO a very good example 
why github is better than bugzilla+bare git repo+wiki - everything is in one 
place and you can discuss it together. It makes things very active, maybe a 
move to github could also attract more contributors.
