WorkingConventions/Git: how to provide patches w/o account on darcs.haskell.org?

http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/WorkingConventions/Git and it
contains following sentence:
"(where <account> is your account on darcs.haskell.org; omit this step
if you don't have one, you can still submit patches via the mailing list
or send a pull request to get your changes in GHC)."
As I would like to provide a patch or two and yet I'm complete git
novice able to just clone and switch branches, I would appreciate if
someone more elaborate on this "or send a pull request to get your
changes in GHC". I guess I shall use github.com for this. If so, then
from what project I shall clone to my github's GHC copy? As I said, I've
never seriously used git before nor github.com so some more writing
about it on the same page would be fantastic to have.
Thanks a lot!
