github itself is closed source, but 95% of its functionality is based on
git which is open. One only needs to invoke 3-4 git operations to
support what it does on the website side. Register on the site, fork the
project under user's login, submit a pull request, merge a fork's branch
to the main branch. All these are basically git commands. Without the
glossiness of github, this is not that large of a project. Submitters
will do the rest through git.
I think, instead of tediously going through the PRs by hand, it is wiser
to set up some system like this.
